In so far as a _perceived_ language structure would enable

us to interpret the concept of the natural numbers, such

a perception is a theology; in it, there are 2 offshoot

theologies which we'll _forever_ (i.e. even in principle of

logic) struggle to choose for acceptance:

- cGC being true

- ~cGC being true.
