In set theory it is neither a set or a subset

because the question does not make sense.

One might compare the remark to a generic set

of forcing conditions described by the

information content of their initial sequences.

But, you would have to admit the notion of

a family of initial segments that are dense within

the partial order. That is contradictory

to your beliefs.
