remmember this posting?

the statement below is one example of why inconsistency is truly no hobgoblin to me:

"l4. There were many new concepts revealed to me along the way. For example, I learned that it is not only OK, but normal and common for mathematicians to consider and talk about propositions that they know to be untrue. For most people, to talk about ideas that they know are false is something to be avoided and to do so may even be considered a sin. In mathematics, it is a powerful weapon in the arsenal of reasoning."

from Paul's website
