Made Perfect In Weakness

When the sets of u and v are "empty" there is no plausible octal to extend over the set in {p, r, s}, beyond that of (r&s)-1. This is most apparent when r is maximised to all Ω, and the disjunction becomes e v Ω or equivalently <e> v ∅. (Note that <e> is the excluded middle of the former disjunction (from before) and would otherwise be impossible to exemplify.)

So the verse:

2Co 12:9 And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me. (KJV)

So, that excluded middle which was always non-exemplifiable becomes logically necessary: Gods "full strength" is made perfect, (complete) in the weakness of the statement that there is no octal over the K4 form (in this case) to extend the K4 form to. That set in the K4 form is then equal to the whole closure of the octal in self-reference (by modal collapse as by Godel's argument, with a "God-like being" identical in positive properties to <e>).

Now, the disjunction has merit for all, and the octal also, but when it becomes humanly impossible to minister with virtue and one side of a disjunction becomes as "e" alone, as if one were unable to virtuously minister to another, I would expect the side of the disjunction in q (not in virtue) to likewise split so that v-1 becomes the set of r-1, and the power of Christ in all "r" would "rest" upon that minister, so that the election of the individual as tokenised by "e" would of necessity on rearranging become part of <e> and all Ω, so that there is no danger to the salvation of an individual no matter their inability to minister to another in "miraclulous" strength.

2Co 12:10 Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in necessities, in persecutions, in distresses for Christ’s sake: for when I am weak, then am I strong. (KJV)

In the case where the K4 closure is the whole closure of the octal, there is a solution with the set v as r and u empty with s=e. The more infirm one side of the disjunction is, in v-1 is as r-1, then the more "mighty" the maximised set of r on the other side of the disjunction. When Christ's strength rests upon an individual, the more so Christ reigns instead (as all Ω when u is empty), and in the vacuous case where s is "empty" but for e, God is omnipotent, yet apparently at rest.

Paul's "infirmities" would correspond to ministering only the left hand side of e v Ω and "reproaches" those oppositions of a "thorn in the flesh". "Necessities" would include the surety of election in the left side of <e> v ∅, and "persecutions" to the opposition to that surety of election, any claim that "God is void", that Paul is a false teacher.

So with both referred to under the banner of "distresses", Paul, in ministering the gospel finds Christ's strength is surely completed - for the gospel is that doctrine which is strong in Christ omnipotent and also that which God rests upon: Paul could not lose his salvation by ministering in adversity or as according to a "thorn in his flesh" in apparent failure.
