Chaitin's latest book on The Limits of Mathematics:
"In a nutshell, Gödel discovered incompleteness,
Turing discovered uncomputability, and I discovered
randomness---that's the amazing fact that some
mathematical statements are true for no reason,
they're true by accident. There can be no
``theory of everything,'' at least not in mathematics.
Maybe in physics!"
