Matheology § 197

"The global unity of mathematics with religion is central in Plato's

work, and in his followers' such as Plotinus and Proclus, but also

much later in modern times."

Compare Goedel's proof of God and Cantor's arguing in favour of

uncountable numbers and Hilbert's laudatio of Cantor's work. My often

cursed noun matheology does not seem to be really far fetched.
