Proof by Will Dyer

ϕ := ∀y(x = y)
ϕ [y|x] := ∀y(y = y)
This is always true, since y will always equal itself by the axiom y = y.
∃x ϕ = ∃x∀y(x = y)
This is not always true, as there is no singular value of x that can equal every possible value of y.
Ex. Say x = 3, and we iterate through N for values of y. x = y is false for all but one value of N.
