One interpretation of
the universe of constructible sets found in standard set theory textbooks is
that even if you start with nothing, you can say "that's a thing," and put
brackets around it and then you've got two things: nothing and {nothing}.
And then you also have {nothing and {nothing}}

Why start with nothing? Isn't this arbitrary?
In fact zero information = all possibilities and all information = 0 possibility.
of course, (0 possibility) = 1 possibililty

What is not arbitrary? Certainly anything is arbitrary. The least arbitrary seems to be everything which is in fact zero information.
Start with the set(everything) and start deriving your numbers.
To do this, instead of using the operation set( ), use the operation elementof( ).
Hence one=elementof(everything) and two = elementof(everything - one); three = elementof(everything - one - two)
