Paz & Gorm & Oliver & some other friends are all perplexed about mathematics. They think it is huge, and so important that all philosophy should just conform itself to Maths. The problem is, while they know that any data or knowledge can at best be an approximation and a simplification and a relative truth, they misteriously miss the relativeness of Maths. And it is a shame, too, that they are perplexed, because Maths is such a simple, solved issue.

2 + 2 is not 4 to someone who doesn’t know what 2 is. Saying that is a truism, so obvious it is foolish, so simple it hurts.

And yet they miss that Mathematics is relative, they even miss that this one proves the relativeness of Math, mostly because they yearn for a mathematical proof of it.

Geez, that even exists, Gödel, a man with too much time in his hands, provided.
