I think there may be a confusion of what I am suggesting. Let's say there is someinteger N, so large it cannot be described by anyone in this universe. What I am sayingis 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 overthe other in a universe where it is not known and not knowable. However, whether thefirst statement happens to be true, or the second statement happens to be true, thatstatement was true independently of anyone in any universe proving it, and so it wouldbe true even if there were no physical universes or mathematicians.
