Axiom ax-bnd 1372
Description: Axiom of bundling. The general idea of this axiom is that two variables are either distinct or non-distinct. That idea could be expressed as . However, we instead choose an axiom which has many of the same consequences, but which is different with respect to a universe which contains only one object. holds if and are the same variable, likewise for and , and holds if is distinct from the others (and the universe has at least two objects).

As with other statements of the form "x is decidable (either true or false)", this does not entail the full Law of the Excluded Middle (which is the proposition that all statements are decidable), but instead merely the assertion that particular kinds of statements are decidable (or in this case, an assertion similar to decidability).

This axiom implies ax-i12 1371 as can be seen at axi12 1380. Whether ax-bnd can be proved from the remaining axioms including ax-i12 1371 is not known.

The reason we call this "bundling" is that a statement without a distinct variable constraint "bundles" together two statements, one in which the two variables are the same and one in which they are different. (Contributed by Mario Carneiro and Jim Kingdon, 14-Mar-2018.)
