But, didn't you just dream of them in your philosophy? Or, is your theory incomplete, or inconsistent?
Having just put a name on all of them, congratulations: there's more. Basically BuraliForti: Ord is irregular.
Wellorder the reals, via Fefermann V = L, the universe as constructible has for each element: that's its own name. Are the reals a set?
The evidence for uncountability relies largely on constructive proofs. And, the arguments for uncountability of the reals don't apply to EF the natural/unit equivalency function.
Arguments for uncountability of the reals don't apply to EF: putting the elements of the unit interval in a row, while satisfying notions such as continuity, has range R_[0,1].
Bring forth applications of transfinite cardinals. EF has application as the unit line segment.
