We all know showing $P\ne NP$ has barriers. We all have studied these barriers because we believe $P\ne NP$.
However assume $P=NP$ and there are wise people who believe that possibility exists. If this is indeed the case then the very fact that we have not seen any good algorithms indicates there might be barriers in this alternate universe as well. Provability of $P\ne NP$ is barrier ridden and we do not know for sure $P\ne NP$ is the truth. We do not know for sure $P= NP$ is the truth either and so is provability of $P=NP$ also barrier ridden?
