gut reaction = intuition , and intuition is probably a
better mind tool than any kind of ordinary logical
reasoning. Einstein and Goedel would agree with me.
As to my background in metamathematics, most of what i
have a currently garnered on the subject so far has
been from reading Rudy Rucker's nonfiction series =}
With regards to informal systems, they are conceivable
so sure they exist. Formal systems are but a tiny
infinitesimal subset of the set of all mathematical
systems, according to my intuition ;)
