But no criterion for being in, or not in, the set of reals distinguishes
between any one real and any another real.

So however relevant such differences may be for other purposes, as far
as any set containing them is concerned differences between members is
totally irrelevant.

"Is x a member of y?" is a purely yes or no question.
