You just proved that your own system is consistent?

How many fucking times do you need this explained?

This statement is true and unprovable.
Self-contradictory statements are rejected as incorrect.
"This sentence is not true" is indeed {not true} yet that does not make it
true because it has the self-contradiction error.
There is no statement that is not self contradictory given that each statement is a localization of a continuum thus representing a part of the whole. As representative of a part, each statement always requires some statement, unrepresented, beyond it. It is this absence of a complete representation that necessitates a contradiction in terms given that something is always provable by what is not provable. With the increase in words comes an increase in contradictions. However with the increase in words, as an increase in contradictions, comes a necessary further increase in words to clarify the contradictions.
That seems like gibberish to me.

1. What grammar is this?
2. What do the symbols ∀, ⊬, ∈ and ↔ mean? e.g how are they evaluated?
3. I don't see a True() predicate anywhere.
4. Is Formal_System a predicate? If not - what is it?

There is always an assertion beyond the assertion which is unprovable given all assertions exist as continuums.

How do you test/determine that your premises are "true" without a truth-predicate?!?

Not "when evaluated", Pete. IF evaluated. IF!

Some numbers are too large to evaluate in this universe's lifetime.

A --> B --> C --> (x) with C being the final portion of the string and (x) being the unknown assertion beyond the string. The final variable of the string is always unproven.

However if A--> B --> C --> A the entire string is proven given through itself as a loop. However another outside string beyond it, required for proof, is accepted "as is" and is unproven.

Thus the statement as self referential is proven, however this self referential statement requires a self referential statement beyond it thus is simultaneously unproven.

All statements are both proven and unproven at the same time in different respects. Proof is dualistic.

I don't have to conclusively prove that Quine is incorrect in his TWO DOGMAS OF EMPIRICISM
or prove that the axiomatic argument of the Münchhausen trilemma is baseless to prove
that within this specified definition of sound deduction:

(a) Beginning with a set of premises that are known to be true.
(b) Applying truth preserving operations to these premises.
(c) Deriving a conclusion that is known to be true.

Undecidable(F, X) means Invalid(F,X) instead of Incomplete(F).

Providing the foundational basis of analytic knowledge is a whole
other issue for another day.

*sigh*

I am ignoring points B and C because they DON'T FUCKING MATTER. So yes, you fucking have to address Quine.
You are being selective about the things you have to prove - I am not.

If True means Provable (which is what you claim) then I insist you PROVE that your premises are TRUE.
If you can't do that, you are playing some stupid equivocation dance.

You are confusing the a priori and a posteriori meaning of "decidable".
The way to DECIDE if your premises are true is to invoke the True() predicate on your premise.

If it halts - it's decidable.
UNTIL it halts - it's undecidable.

My conclusion does logically follow from my premises thus if my premises
are true then Gödel is wrong (within my assumptions) and you cannot possibly
show otherwise.

You can, however, digress into an infinite set of side issues making
closure forever impossible. This is incorrect software engineering.
Once one module is complete and correct then you move on to the next module.

You aren't fucking listening!!!

IF your premises are true. IF. IF.

But you said True means Provable. And you also said unprovable means untrue!

You own definitions disprove your own premises. I don't need to show it because you have shown it!

1000000000th time. You don't understand Godel.

Godel's claims are about language which are (and hear me carefully here) POWERFUL ENOUGH to say things about THE NATURAL NUMBERS. In order for you to say anything about "THE NATURAL NUMBERS" you must be able to say things about infinite sets.

And that was precisely Godel's point.

You can't CLOSE an infinite set!
You can CLOSE a finite set!

Which is why computer scientists reject ABSOLUTE infinities.

But computer scientists also embrace transfinite numbers because they allow for transfinite recursion.

You know what regular English speakers call "transfinite recursion"? Induction! As in the problem of induction.

The only reason you think it's "incorrect software engineering" is because you don't know how to handle transfinite values in finite memory.

Consistency OR completeness. CHOOSE one.

If you want closure CHOOSE completeness.
If you want closure GIVE UP consistency.

If you want CLOSURE then look no further than the Cartesian CLOSED categories
In category theory, a category is Cartesian closed if, roughly speaking, any morphism defined on a product of two objects can be naturally identified with a morphism defined on one of the factors. These categories are particularly important in mathematical logic and the theory of programming, in that their internal language is the simply typed lambda calculus. They are generalized by closed monoidal categories, whose internal language, linear type systems, are suitable for both quantum and classical computation.
You seem uneasy with the consequences of this choice. Why?

I am asking: "Is my reasoning valid?"

You keep saying that I have not proven that my reasoning is sound.
That is correct. I have not proven that my reasoning is sound.

Like I have told you 100000 times before also.

In addition to Godel's incompleteness theorem. There is ALSO Godel's completeness theorem.

That theorem says EXACTLY what you have been saying.

Gödel's completeness theorem is a fundamental theorem in mathematical logic that establishes a correspondence between semantic truth and syntactic provability in first-order logic.

The humongous difference is that my formulation applies to the entire body of
analytical truth thus within its sound deductive inference model Gödel's 1931
Incompleteness theorem is simply incorrect.
