### Truth, Ignorance and Faith

Posted:

**Mon May 24, 2021 9:11 am**For those without the ~70 minutes I will try to describe the 3 videos below.

Truth: excellent story about how our fundamental ideas about truth and provability in mathematics was undermined (and incidentally the study lead to all of modern computing). How in the early 20th century mathematicians proved that formal systems have unprovably true statements. Truth =/= Provable, and that even consistency can't be proven.

Igorance: that the State of Ignorance is a both a deliberate choice to avoid uncomfortable truths, and a system of censorship to enforce Ignorance.

Faith, less fundamental, but an interesting example. People may be choosing to be ignorant, despite systemic censorship, in order to be more comfortable. But then again the whole edifice of western thought is built upon unprovably true mathematics, which makes it more of a question of perspective.

I'd love to have a conversation to help me better understand these points.
