only over purely syntactically constructed WFF

with the property phi v ~phi

A WFF with the Stipulation phi XOR ~phi
N.S.T. works fine! (a variation thereof)

rer <-> ~(rer)

is embedded (contained ***) in a sub-formula and E(r) is proven false.

"Double" the N.S.T. axiom.

E(S) A(X) XeS<->phi(X)
<->
E(S) A(X) XeS<->phi(X)

from this Tautology we get

~( E(S) A(X) XeS<->phi(X)
<->
~E(S) A(X) XeS<->phi(X) )

which is a restrictive Axiom.

then

~E(r) A(X) Xer<->~XeX
<->
~(rer<->~rer) ***

then

~E(r) A(X) Xer<->~XeX
<->
TRUE

then

~E(r) A(X) Xer<->~XeX

You think there are more than |INFINITE LIST ROWS| Points

between these 2 bars!

---->|------|<-----

Right?
