[FOM] The wider implications of incompleteness

Science and technology have transformed the world through the objective 
guidance of mathematics and experiments. No similar objective guide 
exists for the human values that determine how we use this power and 
this is becoming increasingly dangerous. The simplest possible 
assumption about the connection between physical structure and conscious 
experience leads to the possibility of an objective approach to human 
values. The incompleteness results imply that ever expanding diversity 
somewhat like that of biological evolution will eventually be essential 
to fully explore the mathematical possibilities and the possibilities 
for the evolution of consciousness.

These ideas are developed in www.mtnmath.com/phil/evol.pdf
