I dunno about Eli, but I found some of the reactions to this finding
amusing (some of the Grail's priests found out the chalice is a cheap
imitation made in China, boo-hoo).

What woulld be interesting to know 1) has this practical relevance to
physics? Maybe the unreasonable applicability is indeed somewhat
unreasonable 2) Are there workarounds, by generating large integers coding
for a statement, using is as point of departure? Maybe automatically
generating new bodies of science and then screening for truths, assuming
that two different systems don't completely overlap?
