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,
"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
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.
