Yeah, abstract logic allows for neat stunts (and a lot of sales for

Well, the theorem is counter-intuitive in its nature, and paradoxical.

After all, any consistent system should be provable, but isn't. But if
it isn't provable, it isn't consistent, but yet it is.

The theorem is, in a way, its own proof. :P
