Vladimir Sazonov provides the following metatheory:
> The actual nature of natural numbers (I mean - in general - not
> in concrete examples) is our thoughts of them. Our thoughts are
> sufficiently objective. We can communicate on them one with another.
> But our perception of our thoughts on N that this imagined entity
> is solid is our illusion.
And then says:
> I do not need any metatheory (as you suggest) to realize this,
> although I do not exclude the possibility that some metatheoretical
> considerations might illuminate some questions discussed here.
