Anything that is contained in any sets at all is contained in a oneelement set, the set of which it is the sole member, but this in no way prevents it from being a member of other sets, including infinite sets, at least outside of WM's wild weird world of WMytheology.

It is equally valid to claim that 2 cannot be reached because then it would be 1.
