Gödel’s Incompleteness Theorem and Universal Physics Theories

Gödel’s Incompleteness Theorem and Universal Physics Theories

Most physicists and scientists have aspired, and continue to aspire, for an absolute universal theory – a complete theory that accounts for all phenomena already observed and that will ever be observed, using only a few and basic first principles. But, as in the liar paradox or Russell’s paradox, a fundamental concept expressed in the results of Gödel’s incompleteness theorems is that self-referencing leads to logical conflict or failure. When it is understood that the observer is also a participant in the experienced phenomenon – that we, humans, are part of the world while studying it – self-referencing is unavoidable in physics theories. As a result, self-referencing and, as a result, logical contradictions are inevitable, and every universal theory is bound to be incomplete.
