I find this incredibly disturbing as it means every proof I have written would become worthless should the axiomatic system it is written in be demonstrated to be inconsistent.

I find this so disturbing that I question if I want to pursue my studies in mathematics, one thing I always liked about mathematics is that I considered it built on unshakable ground but this appears not to be the case.

Has anyone else experienced this revelation? How do you deal with it?
