why would I care, I've never bothered to even open one of your own
posts in 10 years.

Meanwhile, I have a partially operational formal system to tweak...
I'll leave the hand job mathematics for your well practiced ilk.

wff(X) :- t(X).
wff(X) :- f(X).
what(X,true) :- t(X).
what(X,false) :- f(X).

t(if(X,Y)) :- t(X), t(Y).
t(if(X,Y)) :- f(X), f(Y).
t(if(X,Y)) :- f(X), t(Y).
t(or(X,Y)) :- t(X).
t(or(X,Y)) :- t(Y).
t(and(X,Y)) :- t(X),t(Y).
t(iff(X,Y)) :- t(X),t(Y).
t(iff(X,Y)) :- f(X),f(Y).
t(xor(X,Y)) :- t(X),f(Y).
t(xor(X,Y)) :- f(X),t(Y).

f(if(X,Y)) :- t(X),f(Y).
f(or(X,Y)) :- f(X),f(Y).
f(and(X,Y)) :- f(X).
f(and(X,Y)) :- f(Y).
f(iff(X,Y)) :- t(X),f(Y).
f(iff(X,Y)) :- f(X),t(Y).
f(xor(X,Y)) :- t(X),t(Y).
f(xor(X,Y)) :- f(X),f(Y).

t(RHS) :- if(LHS,RHS), t(LHS).

row( at(V,F,G,L) , at(V2,F2,G2,L2) ) :-
rule1(V,V2),
rule2(V2,G2,L2),
rule3(V2,F2,G2),
rule4(F,G,L,V2,F2,G2,L2),
rule5(F,G,L,V2,F2,G2,L2),
rule6(F,G,L,V2,F2,G2,L2).

rule1(V,V2) :- t(xor(V,V2)).
rule2(V2,F2,L2) :- if( xor(V2,L2) , xor(G2,L2) ).
rule3(V2,F2,G2) :- if( xor(V2,G2) , xor(F2,G2) ).
rule4(F,G,L,V2,F2,G2,L2) :- if( and(xor(F,F2),xor(G,G2)) ,
iff(L,L2) ).
rule5(F,G,L,V2,F2,G2,L2) :- if( and(xor(F,F2),xor(L,L2)) ,
iff(G,G2) ).
rule6(F,G,L,V2,F2,G2,L2) :- if( and(xor(G,G2),xor(L,L2)) ,
iff(F,F2) ).

ergo
if it's raining then the sun's not out
