Three hundred years ago, it was still possible for an intelligent person to have read all of the books that constituted the whole knowledge base of the world. Leibniz was the last genius to truly know everything and to accept that the universe was an organism rather than a machine. It was a very special type of organism - a mathematical organism, made of monadic souls.

Stephen Hawking, adopting the popular misconception, said, “Thus mathematics is either inconsistent, or incomplete. The smart money is on incomplete.” if mathematics is tautology, as Wittgenstein said, mathematics cannot be inconsistent and/or incomplete.

Bottleneck is about the narrowness of Now. By daring to explore what information science can tell us about the process of learning. it reveals that we can absorb shockingly little truly new information from the present moment. The implication: the world we experience is almost entirely an imagined reality, based on our lifelong past experiences. Here at last is a science of prejudice.
