Daryl doesn't know that this is a Godel Statement!
!(PROVE(thisformulasgodelnumber))
^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
He'll whine about it not being maths or being a crank or something.
Daryl can you make out any DIFFERENCE between these 2 formula?
ALL(T1) EXIST(T2) T1!(PRV(GSGN)) & T2PRV[ T1!(PRV(GSGN)) ] > T1=/=T2
If a theory T1 has a statement GS !Prove(GS) then it cannot be proven in that same theory.
A stronger version that G is in every theory. A(T1)E(G)E(T2) T1=/=T2 & T1G & T2PRV( T1G )
Also Daryl, how do you remove RUSSELL'S SET from invoking in ZFC?
