# easy way to see this, is to ask yourself: how come in mathematics
# there's no such thing as "addresses/pointers/references".

The whole point of Goedelisation was to add to name/value references into
number theory. Thus Goedel was able to add back pointers contrary to the
set hierarchy of the theory of types and reintroduce Russel's paradox.
