Let' see now.  Kurt Godel wrote a paper demonstrating the existence of
formally undecidable propositions in a system comparable to Principia
Mathematica.  But ZZBunker probably has other things in mind.

Somehow, though, it turns out he is right that chemistry, in its
entirety, does not explain all of brain function. It turns out that a
little physics is needed, also (among other notions).
