    In case you’re curious about what the text behind the trollcat is (and because I’m inordinately proud of having composed such a cringeworthy piece of gibberish):

    “My dear boy, while a sentence of a predicate logic may be a well formed formula with no free variables, a “sentence qua sentence” is viewed by most as requiring the expression of a proposition that makes an assertion concerning a fixed truth value with respect to the nominal structure of L!

    In stark contrast, the truth value of a formula with free variables may very well be indeterminate with respect to any structure, and may range over several values which could be members of a universe, relations or functions, which themselves are concerned with variable truth value.

    For example, a signature containing a constant symbol 0 for the number 0, a unary function symbol s for the successor function and a binary function symbol + for addition is necessarily closed. This ably demonstrates that a closed expression is not necessarily a ground expression, and therefore a ground formula is a closed formula, but not a ground formula, because it contains a logical variable, even though that variable is not free!”

    The dialectic of troll is not antithetical to cat.

    You lost me at “a fixed truth value with respect to the nominal structure of L!”
    Which is probably not such a bad thing.

    You lost me at “while a sentence of predicate logic”.
