A Foundation in Wisdom
Sheridan, a lonely hitchhiker, told me history, and the world, was ending. His evidence was the story of a mathematician who tried to prove the world didn't exist.
It was a silly proposition. Nobody can prove the world doesn't exist. But as I became more convinced Sheridan was right, that the proof lay at the edge of reality, I could only wonder, where would we go? More
Mathematics, philosophy, sarcasm, and squirrels ~
John Bartlebee is a traveling scholar on his way to a seminar. Along the road, he picks up a hitchhiker, but soon comes to regret the decision. John quickly realizes there is something amiss with both Sheridan, the hitchhiker, and the world around him. When Sheridan claims the world is ending, John demands proof, and is offered it in the form of a story.
Sheridan tells the story of Marcus, a young mathematician who discovers he has the ability to "prove away existence." When Marcus sets out to help people "prove their problems away," he is soon asked to prove the world itself doesn't exist. Marcus finds himself on a quest to determine what existence really means. As Marcus journeys outside the fabric of existence, John begins to wonder if Sheridan is right. Perhaps the world is ending, and the proof can be found at the edge of reality.
