But a theory, like the wild weird theory of WMytheology, that says it IS well ordered in its usual order, contributes chaos. > > Look, when I ask what is 5 + 5? You may answer
Or I may not. Since if WM has to ask, there is not much point in answering.
For the standard naturals, or integers, or rationals, or reals, of complexes, or even quaternions, 5 + 5 is 10. It is only in areas like modular arithmetic or WMYTHEOLOGY that it may be something else.
The only empty set that has a right to be considered is the success of WM's set theory. > > Descartes once claimed that the only vacuum existing in the universe, was the > brain of Pascal. With respect to modern set theorists, he might have even > found some better sites.
Since WM does not appear to have a mind at all, vacuum may be the only occupant of WM's skull. --
