“This sentence is false.”


The famous Liar’s Paradox opens the first of 24 lectures, which range from pure mathematics to statistics, physics, and even political science.


Amazing conundrums include:

  1. *the Banach-Tarski Paradox, proving that a ball can be “split” into 6 pieces, which can be rearranged into 2 balls ... the same size as the original!

  2. *a disorienting, green screened trip into different twisted 3-dimensional spaces (in which I play catch ... with myself)

  3. *amazing demos with springs, spools, television screens, and even spaghetti noodles

  4. *a detailed look at how Godel used “strange loops” to prove his amazing Incompleteness Theorems.
