comment Logic in mathematics and philosophy
Many thanks Joel, for your answer. As a graet fan (albeit rather ignorant) of both areas (and also of Y. Gurevich) I am certainly happy to hear on stengthening relations between philosophy and set theory/logic.

It will also be probably appropriate to ask here if your more exact formula is new, likely to be correct, etc. (while presenting it). I am not familiar with vixra.org but if you want your paper to be "recorded," and if there is no endorsement needed, I dont see why it is not advisable.

Dear Lec: "Heuristics is, of course, in favor of the conjecture," why is that?
