There are many versions of MK, those differ by altering size
limitation, for
example this can be altered exactly as in this theory, so instead of
Universal
kind of size limitation (which is the usual in MK) we can use the one
I wrote
as the last of the axioms here, this will deprive MK from choice as it
did here.
Anyhow
