Solution to PvNP

Wondering if a solution to PvNP exists. playing around with it myself.

one bit can be a 0 or a 1. if a bit represents the problem of PvNP, and a bit is a variable. then there are 0 or 1 solutions to PvNP.

does this sound right?

To piggyback on Joppy's astute analysis, just set $P = NP$ and assume we are in a field of characteristic 0. Then we have $P(1-N) = 0$ so either $P =0$ or $N = 1$. Just as predicted.

I'm stealing this solution. I'll publish it and the million dollars is mine. Muaahahahaha
