Some context first:

First, there is this result that extends Gödel's incompleteness which states (among other things) that given the set $S$ of all true statements, the probability that a statement $s\in S$ is indecidable is closer to $1$ as the complexity of $s$ increases, ultimately that probability tends to $1$ as the complexity tends to $\infty$. (Complexity in the sense of Kolmogorov).

Second, there is this idea that the complexity (Kolmogorov again) of the universe changes as the universe evolve. When it was small and super-dense and very homogeneic, its complexity was quite small. Right now its complexity is much higher. And when the universe will "die" (because of a big crunch or because of expansion), its complexity will be small again.

Here are my questions:

  1. Can the universe be thought as some kind of logical system that is affected by Gödel's incompleteness ?
  2. If so, is it correct to think that what is possible right now (including our ability to think and elaborate theories) is limited by the complexity of the universe ?
  3. Are there some "hidden" truth in the universe that cannot be captured by reason (right now) but maybe later the universe will become complex enough to unveil these truths ?
  4. Conversely, is it possible that at some point, when the universe will become less complex, some well known and established truth will become unfatomable ?

    $\begingroup$ I was wondering if it would be best here (as this may be used in a novel) or if it was best for physics or maths... Is it possible to transfer it where it should be ? $\endgroup$ – davcha Jan 9 at 12:59

    $\begingroup$ @davcha IMHO it is best for philosophy.SE $\endgroup$ – Radovan Garabík Jan 9 at 13:00
  • $\begingroup$ Many issues with your post: too many questions in one post, not sure if they are really about worldbuilding and some are pretty unclear. Please sharpen and clarify. $\endgroup$ – L.Dutch Jan 9 at 13:03
  • $\begingroup$ @davcha Nice ideas though. You could postulate a god who's intelect waxes and wanes with it's universe's state. $\endgroup$ – Fay Suggers Jan 9 at 14:44
