Definition df-tru 1246
 Description: Definition of the truth value "true", or "verum", denoted by ⊤. This is a tautology, as proved by tru 1247. In this definition, an instance of id 19 is used as the definiens, although any tautology, such as an axiom, can be used in its place. This particular id 19 instance was chosen so this definition can be checked by the same algorithm that is used for predicate calculus. This definition should be referenced directly only by tru 1247, and other proofs should depend on tru 1247 (directly or indirectly) instead of this definition, since there are many alternative ways to define ⊤.
