Going off a recommendation from Berglmir in another thread, I checked out this BBC documentary called "Dangerous Knowledge" about 4 separate mathematicians and how there work into mathematics drove them insane, mad, and even committing suicide. I'm only on part 3 but so far its very interesting, check it out!

I just finished it and I must say its amazing! I knew about Godel and Turing, and some pieces of Boltzman but most of Cantor's story I didn't know. It was great to see how his experiences with the infinite came back around to Godel and Turing and eventually brought to light, in even fuller force, that logic has limits, and there is unsolvable concepts and problems and we will never know exactly what they are.

Very interesting, definitely leaves you thinking! smile.gif

As a point of trivia, Godel's thinking has been utilised by Roger Penrose to argue recently that true AI may, in principle, be impossible as there will be problems that are non-computable ie. some aspects of problem solving can't be turned into algorithms and thus there may be defined limits to how 'smart' AI can become. Agree or disagree, he's started a storm among AI theorists.
