Theorem ltntri 7997
 Description: Negative trichotomy property for real numbers. It is well known that we cannot prove real number trichotomy, 𝐴 < 𝐵 ∨ 𝐴 = 𝐵 ∨ 𝐵 < 𝐴. Does that mean there is a pair of real numbers where none of those hold (that is, where we can refute each of those three relationships)? Actually, no, as shown here. This is another example of distinguishing between being unable to prove something, or being able to refute it. (Contributed by Jim Kingdon, 13-Aug-2023.)
