Surely you wouldn't wilful give an obscure definition? The point of a
definition is to clarify meaning, isn't it? From your definition

_A meta truth_ is said to be impossible to know if it's not in the
collection of meta truths, resulting from all available definitions,
permissible reasoning methods, within the underlying logic framework
[FOL(=) in this case].

this follows:

We don't yet know if PA|-cGC or PA|-~cGC, so we don't know if "PA|-cGC"
or "PA|-~cGC" is in the collection of meta truths. So we don't know if
it's impossible to know cGC (or ~cGC). Why, then, do you claim that
it's impossible to know cGC (or ~cGC)?

Do you know that both cGC and ~cGC are not in the collection of meta
truths? If so you must know that neither PA|-cGC nor PA|-~cGC. You
should publish your proof. And stop claiming that Gödel's
incompleteness theorem is invalid, because if neither PA|-cGC nor
PA|-~cGC, then that is an example of incompleteness.

Also if you know that neither PA|-cGC nor PA|-~cGC, then you've proved
PA consistent. So you should stop claiming that its consistency is
unprovable.
