Here's what you wrote:

"I can prove that there exists an n which requires more than 10^80 bits

to name it. This n does not exist."

Now, I guess, you're saying that you meant to say something else,

namely:

"I can prove that there exists according to current mathematics an n

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

which requires more than 10^80 bits to name it. This n does not exist

in reality."

^^^^^^^^^^

So, if you're saying that what you actually wrote was mistaken, or at

least did not convey what you meant, then just say so explicitly.

I'll remove it from my .sigs.
