Proposal: Properties and Principles

Passes 4-0. — Quirck

Append to the rule “Atomic Logic”:

If P is the name of a GNDT column and E is a value, then the formula Has(A,P,E) is True if Atom A has a value E for P, and is False otherwise.
The formula Exists(P,E) is True if any Atom has a value of E for P, and is False otherwise.
In Formulae {A@} represents the set of all Atoms.


expanding to introduce basic interactions with GNDT and general state. Also, making sure that a set of Atoms is accessible. (With set theory this can be used to represent subsets of atoms!)

imperial The idea seems pretty good, though currently, the axioms don’t contain any set theory, so the only thing we can do with {A@} is construct the Formula “X is an element of {A@}”, which is equivalent to “X is an Atom”.

yet… . Trust me - set theory will likely be introduced.

for I think that “set” is taken to mean what it conventionally does.
