I have upgraded the extended abstract #82
https://u.osu.edu/friedman.8/foundational-adventures/downloadable-manuscripts/
with
material designed to make the perfect Pi01 mathematical incompleteness yet
more friendly for the mathematics community.

EXTENDED ABSTRACT
*This research was partially supported by the John
Templeton Foundation grant ID #36297. The opinions

necessarily reflect the views of the John Templeton
Foundation.
Abstract. Every order invariant subset of Q[0,n]^2k has all
sections at strictly increasing r tuples of positive
integers ≤ n agreeing below 1 (trivial). Every order
invariant subset of Q[0,n]^2k has a maximal square whose
sections at strictly increasing r tuples of positive
integers ≤ n agree below 1 (nontrivial). We prove the latter
in ZFC augmented with a standard large cardinal hypothesis,
and show that ZFC does not suffice (assuming ZFC is
consistent). We also establish this for a number of
variants, including an explicitly finite form. We refer to
these developments as
Pi01 mathematical incompleteness
Just about the most perfect of the perfect would be something like this:
PROPOSITION. E
v
ery order invariant subset of Q^8 has a maximal square whose sections at
(1,2,3) and (2,3,4) agree below 1.
PROPOSITION. Every order invariant graph on Q^4 has a has a maximal clique
whose sections at (1,2,3) and (2,3,4) agree below 1.
I don't know how to prove such statements are independent of ZFC, although
I can prove them using large cardinals.
