Is it bleeding or is that just something said from the perspective of 
innocence, as if in a previous world, logic would have been complete ?

If a complete and consistent self-referential logic system is impossible, 
then this is something that has to be accepted as having been always true, 
and our conception of the world has to be rebraided according to that 
truth. It's not useful to keep holding an old ideal of universality that 
looks like a measuring stick with which we assess an increasing rift 
between our fantasies and the consciousness of our own limits.
