what's apparently obvious can sometimes be nothing but illusion

Magicians come to mind.

That pic reminds me of the 'beast/god' you (via morbid angel)go on about sometimes.

I think Kahn is really onto somethign with x only being equivalent to x

no two things can take up the same space

even if they seem to..they'd be in different dimensions

Willie Wonka quotes..

What is this Wonka, some kind of funhouse?

Why? Are you having fun?

A little nonsense now and then is relished by the wisest men.

X = X in a limited sense for abstract mathematical purposes.

But in the physical world there are two different things with another thing in between them.

**IF you are looking for the isomorphism between abstract reality and physical reality then you need to search for a fractal mathematics and not see math as a game**.

X is not equal to not-X

is a good start...

Tegmark's response in [8] (sec VI.A.1) is to offer a new hypothesis

"that only Godel-complete (fully decidable) mathematical structures have physical existence".

Physical reality cannot be defined as a set if set theory itself contains undefined notions... ๐ฏ

Axiomatic set theory

I will informally list the undefined notions, the axioms, and two of the ``schemes'' of set theory, along the lines of Bourbaki's account. The axioms are closer to the von Neumann-Bernays-Gรถdel model than to the equivalent ZFC model. (But some of the axioms are identical to some in ZFC; see the entry ZermeloFraenkelAxioms.) The intention here is just to give an idea of the level and scope of these fundamental things....There are three undefined notions:

1. the relation of equality of two sets

2. the relation of membership of one set in another (xy )

3. the notion of an ordered pair, which is a set comprised from two other sets, in a specific order.
