    1. "It would be an interesting result to establish that incompleteness is actually unimportant for the practice of mathematics ..."

      Judging by its fruit the incompleteness theorem is a "complete falsehood."

      It blocks the realization that we can establish completeness and consistency only in a closed world of formal symbolic systems where we restrict the discourse to strictly finite sentences.

      Consider the success of finite model checking that can establish with absolute certainty correctness of chip design, a critical semantic property, that the accepted theory of would be deem a semantic property that cannot be. Here we run into physical limits, but not alleged theoretical.

      These theoretical limitations appear because we have wrong theories and concepts.

      It goes back to the use of Cantor's diagonal argument that brings in completed infinities into a strictly finite domain. Strictly finite subsets of all finite set's are trivially enumerable! All this blocks us asking the right questions to develop viable conceptual frameworks.

      I am glad to see that others trying to find a way around it,

      Work in the foundations of mathematics remain dead until we are ready to ditch the wrong concepts.

    2. How is it possible that we carry so many half-truths and approximations concerning the origins of our field? Is it a failure of our educational institutions that teach STEM without giving the historical and philosophical perspective? Or maybe it's our fault, another aspect of our infamous tendency toward cargo culting? Alfred North Whitehead said that civilization advances by extending the number of important operations which we can perform without thinking of them. If he is right, then the cost of civilization is all the thinking being retired from it.
