Theorem dvelim 2486
Description: This theorem can be used to eliminate a distinct variable restriction on 𝑥 and 𝑧 and replace it with the "distinctor" ¬ ∀𝑥𝑥 = 𝑦 as an antecedent. 𝜑 normally has 𝑧 free and can be read 𝜑(𝑧), and 𝜓 substitutes 𝑦 for 𝑧 and can be read 𝜑(𝑦). We do not require that 𝑥 and 𝑦 be distinct: if they are not, the distinctor will become false (in multiple-element domains of discourse) and "protect" the consequent.

To obtain a closed-theorem form of this inference, prefix the hypotheses with 𝑥𝑧, conjoin them, and apply dvelimdf 2484.

Other variants of this theorem are dvelimh 2485 (with no distinct variable restrictions) and dvelimhw 2337 (that avoids ax-13 2407). (Contributed by NM, 23-Nov-1994.)
