Axiom ax-10 2141
Description: Axiom of Quantified Negation. Axiom C5-2 of [Monk2] p. 113. This axiom scheme is logically redundant (see ax10w 2129) but is used as an auxiliary axiom scheme to achieve scheme completeness. It means that 𝑥 is not free in ¬ ∀𝑥𝜑. (Contributed by NM, 21-May-2008.) Use its alias hbn1 2142 instead if you must use it. Any theorem in first-order logic (FOL) that contains only set variables that are all mutually distinct, and has no wff variables, can be proved *without* using ax-10 2141 through ax-13 2386, by invoking ax10w 2129 through ax13w 2136. We encourage proving theorems *without* ax-10 2141 through ax-13 2386 and moving them up to the ax-4 1806 through ax-9 2120 section. (New usage is discouraged.)
