No, I do not speak of a set when I say one, two, or three or

infinitely many lines. Don't confuse the set of all lines with all

lines of the set.

Do you believe that one line can be considered without considering it

as a set, but two or more lines cannot be considered as elements of a

set, but only as the set?

How inconsistent!

And even removing no line cannot be done other than by removing the

empty set?

But I don't want to remove a set. When has it been prohibited to

handle elements of a set? Where is that laid down in the axioms of

ZFC?
