Beneath the surface of the world, are the rules of
science. But beneath them, there is a far deeper set of rules – a matrix
of pure mathematics which explains the nature of the rules of science
and how it is way we can understand them in the first place. In this
one-off documentary, David Malone looks at four brilliant mathematicians
– Georg Cantor, Ludwig Boltzmann, Kurt Gödel and Alan Turing – whose
genius has profoundly affected us, but which tragically drove them
insane and eventually led to them all committing suicide.
film begins with Georg Cantor, the great mathematician whose work
proved to be the foundation for much of the 20th-century mathematics. He
believed he was God’s messenger and was eventually driven insane trying
to prove his theories of infinity.
