It is not a mathematical issue.

Forcing changes what it means for something to
be true in mathematics if the outcome is to
define truth in terms of "truth persistence
under forcing".

Tarski-based semantics is replaced by the kind of
thing that is discussed in the book by Langholm.

To change the classical problem is not the same
as solving the classical problem.

For example, suppose it to be true that partial
systems are not diagonalizable.

I make this guess simply because a presumption
of the diagonal argument is a presumption that
"all" of the objects have been given a locus
in the list.

Non-diagonalizability is a "truth" of partial
systems.

It is not a truth of total systems.

So, what other "truths" are different?
