Default Gödel, Escher, Bach: An Eternal Golden Braid

The Pulitzer prize winner for 1979 (from memory), techincally a philosophical work concerning the nature and location of meaning but much, much more than that.

You really really ought to know more about indirect self-reference, typogenetics, word play, formal systems, ricercars, ant hills, recursion, and many other topics which this work includes.

This book changed my thought patterns more than any other work. A Magniftract Indeed!
