Would you have any link on "coordinated interpretation"?

I'm not sure if all of those logic's would be related to my proposal
here, which is simply re-interpreting the logical symbols _ in any_
_which way_ one would feel pleased, provided that:

a) The re-interpretations be cohesively meaningful (and logical).

b) Certain corresponding provision for formula's truth and falsehood
be available.

There is no remainder in the mathematics of infinity.
