One of my greatest meta-heroes is Greg Chaitin, one of the
most original thinkers of our time. I was very honored when
Cristian Calude invited me to contribute something for
a **festschrift** that he is editing in honor of
Greg's 60th birthday. But I couldn't just
submit yet another *mathematical* paper,
so I decided to do *meta-mathematics*, that is
greatly inspired by Chaitin's seminal work, but also
offers some alternative interpretations, and at the same
time advocates my high-school-algebra approach to doing mathematics.
