Yes, all of the things I said. E.g., the conductivity of a superconductor is measured to be equal to infinity.

Can you explain with what instruments we measure something to be "infinity"?
All of my training has showed these to be "placeholders" for mathematical equations, not measurements.

Can you give a specific example and instrument used to measure infinity?

Yes, for example, the one I've mentioned three times in three posts in this thread.

Gödel also was wrestling with some finding means of knowledge which are not based on experience and on mathematical reasoning but on some sort of intuition. The frustration for Gödel was getting anyone to understand him.
Thanks for reading
probably helped him, being peculiar. As I have stated before:
Peculiar as Gödel was his genius was undimmed.
Sanity (and pedantic logic) can be a burden to free thought. Indeed, Gödel fought a battle with reason, logic and maths and probably found refuge in a touch of madness. Faced with concepts like Turing’s Halting Problem, kind of like a dog chasing its tail, when is there ever resolution of any question? Enormously frustrating unless we accept a degree of uncertainty as part of the result.
If you are wondering by now; yes! Like Alonso Quijana, I too find it is useful to “lay(s) down the melancholy burden of sanity.”
Gödel was trying to show what one might call mathematical intuition of the kind we see in the brains of Synesthesia Savants such as Daniel Tammet in current times,
