  • self-evident truths remain that way no matter what we do

  • everything else is imaginary and can be communicated only by the faculties available with the senses - thus, true abstract thought cannot be preserved
  • transcribing this thought so that other people can have it too will probably result in differing intrepretations, unless you do it rigorously in a mathematical sort of way
  • that depends on axioms.

  • and will be around no matter what you do.
  • so why bother?

Of course, you could try to do something interesting like defeat entropy.
