Curvature is reflected in the presence of unresolved branch pairs....

[ Delay in resolution of branch pair reflects curvature ]

Curvature leads to the difficulty of theorem proving

Causal disconnection prevents theorems from being proved [across event horizon]

## Causal Graph

Causal Graph

[ Using prior lemmas to prove subsequent lemmas ]

I.e. ABABB is used to prove ABBAA [ insofar as they are all coming from the “big bang” ]

#### Different case: every node is a proposition [cf FindEquationalProof]

Different case: every node is a proposition [cf FindEquationalProof]

So then every single event is a complete proof.....

But to prove a particular thing may take many steps, with many nodes as lemmas...

Difficulty of finding a proof depends on the number of causal edges that come in ...

Causal edge density leads to branch pairs [ Einstein equations ]

Roughly: the more prior results you “know”, the more wrong turns you can make

[ Causal edges cause the contraction of corollary balls ]

[ If the curvature grows, the branch pair density increases ... does this lead the corollary ball to compress to nothing? ]
