I admit that I didn't truly grasp your first paragraph at first read, and am still processing it.

*snort*

You should see the forehead-shaped dents in my wall. ;-)

Really good ideas -- the ones that change the way you think because they change the way you look at things -- take time to absorb. I just happened to find this particular wall before you did.

One paper you should definitely read before getting too far into the whole business is: What's Wrong With Formal Programming Methods? (PDF, 15 pages, 56K). It's a nice summary of the history and ideas behind formal methods, but doesn't beat you into the ground with impossible-to-type-on-a-regular-keyboard formalisms like the language Z (pronounced 'zed'). It's also a nice antidote to the full-gonzo 'more correct than thou' attitude some formal methods types can acquire.
