Typed up from handwritten notes by: Drachefly

The author writes:

Thus endeth the great cardinality battle.

The current universal critical existence failure is an inevitable result of the reification of the definitions of sets. Dunking the set of all sets that contain themselves in inversion solution is not wise.

Before people start complaining, I've got to say yes it really is a problem. One of my readers said that it made sense, recalling the whole deal with piñatas whose contents are your favourite flavour: dunking it in the solution doesn't just produce the set of all sets that aren't in the set of all sets that contain themselves. But this misses the point. The Set of sets that do not contain themselves is already a problematic set that could be within the set of sets that contain themselves. But it wasn't reified until the latter had been inverted.
