I teach Mathematics and Physics at Bellevue College.

I also was the "technical" web master (as distinct from content creator) at BC from the beginning of Web service at BC in June 1995 till December 1996. From that time till Summer 2002 I performed that function for Science Division.

Currently I have an active interest in physics, rock and ice climbing, mathematics, horses and running mountain trails. I also pretend to study Spanish and guitar. We'll see.

In fact the notion of truth a la Tarski avoids complete triviality by the use of the magical expression "meta." We presuppose the existence of a meta-world, in which logical operations already make sense. The world of discourse can therefore be interpreted in the meta-world. The truth value of "A" is determined by "meta-A," and we can in turn explain "meta-A" by "meta-meta-A" ...

We are facing a transcendental explanation of logic: "The rules of logic have been given to us by Tarski, who in turn got them from Mr. Meta-tarski." This is similar to asserting that "Physical particles act this way because they must obey the laws of physics. "

paraphrased from a note of Jean-Yves Girard
