Abstract: A system has the existence-property for abstracts (existence property for numbers, disjunction-property) if whenever for some abstract for some numeral ; if whenever or are closed). We show that the existence-property for numbers and the disjunction property are never provable in the system itself; more strongly, the (classically) recursive functions that encode these properties are not provably recursive functions of the system. It is however possible for a system (e.g., ) to prove the existence-property for abstracts for itself.
