But Harv:

Aurino: "That is, without logic there is no proof of anything!***" Aurino is right here, and Harv agreed.

But near the end Harv says: "the following may actually be the case: ...."

He said "may actually BE"; note this word "BE".
As soon as you apply the verb "to BE": you have lost the case. LNC applies whenever the verb "to be" applies.

Harv: "Nothing prevents (I*) from being true."
"BEING true"? Whatever pattern-matching (e.g. Tarski pattern matching) you use to give the relationship that is your meaning of "truth";
what prevents (I*) from being true is that (I*) is prohibited from BEING anything.

As (I*) negates BEING, (I*) cannot BE true, or BE at all. (I*) is (I*), isolated from all that exists in its non-existence, you might say.
