Axiom ax-12 2222
 Description: Axiom of Substitution. One of the 5 equality axioms of predicate calculus. The final consequent ∀𝑥(𝑥 = 𝑦 → 𝜑) is a way of expressing "𝑦 substituted for 𝑥 in wff 𝜑 " (cf. sb6 2309). It is based on Lemma 16 of [Tarski] p. 70 and Axiom C8 of [Monk2] p. 105, from which it can be proved by cases. The original version of this axiom was ax-c15 34964 and was replaced with this shorter ax-12 2222 in Jan. 2007. The old axiom is proved from this one as theorem axc15 2443. Conversely, this axiom is proved from ax-c15 34964 as theorem ax12 2444. Juha Arpiainen proved the metalogical independence of this axiom (in the form of the older axiom ax-c15 34964) from the others on 19-Jan-2006. See item 9a at http://us.metamath.org/award2003.html. See ax12v 2223 and ax12v2 2224 for other equivalents of this axiom that (unlike this axiom) have distinct variable restrictions. This axiom scheme is logically redundant (see ax12w 2186) but is used as an auxiliary axiom scheme to achieve scheme completeness. (Contributed by NM, 22-Jan-2007.) (New usage is discouraged.)
