I think there may be a confusion of what I am suggesting. Let's say there is some
integer N, so large it cannot be described by anyone in this universe. What I am saying
is that exactly one of the following two statements is true:
"N is prime", "N is not prime". I agree it is unreasonable to assert one statement over
the other in a universe where it is not known and not knowable. However, whether the
first statement happens to be true, or the second statement happens to be true, that
statement was true independently of anyone in any universe proving it, and so it would
be true even if there were no physical universes or mathematicians.
Suppose I took the negation, "It is not the case that N is prime or N is not prime" and
the rules of inference of paraconsistent logic. Would it make any difference to me? to
