You've said this a gazillion times. What you won't say is what this means. Obviously I knew you'd ignore my question as to whether exists x c X: not(x c image(f)) because you've painted your self into a corner with that one, but I did think you might have a go answering the other one:
 Given, say, a bijection between N and the finite string over the Latin  alphabet, can you write some formula that is true for this bijection in  the wrong theory that is set theory, but true in WMaths? (Or vice  versa, of course.) Maybe it is, in fact, the formula above?
but it seems even this is too risky for you to have a go at answering. Could it be that you don't know of any formula about such a bijection that is true in set theory and false in WMaths?

I have no problem with the theorem in 533.
