I know; i was on threads dying out. Godels theorem gives a specific self referential sentence.
And all I wanted to know is what is its number per the coding used by him. But that is not to be
Found anywhere ,not in texts, not on the net, and not in this group. So I guess my question
Is Ilframed, maybe it is some uncomputable number, but no one says that also.
So my confusion remains, not that I mentioned all this in the hope of getting some response.
