"
. . . the 'tilting' of light cones, i.e. the distortion of
causality due to gravity, is not only a subtle phenomenon, but
a real phenomenon, and it cannot be explained away
by a residual or 'emergent' property that arises when
conglomerations of matter get large enough."^{1b*}
"
. . .
[Einstein's general relativity] theory is confirmed
overall to an error of no more than about
10^{14}."^{1c}_{

"Gödel's
argument does not argue in favour of there being inaccessible
mathematical truths. What it does argue for, on the other
hand, is that human insight lies beyond formal argument
and beyond computable procedures. Moreover, it argues
powerfully for the very existence of the Platonic mathematical
world. Mathematical truth is not determined arbitrarily
by the rules of some 'manmade' formal system, but has an absolute
nature, and lies beyond any such system of specifiable
rules."^{1e*}_{
