I'm not so sure about that. Usually you would give some definition like "The present king of France" = { }. But if you think the universe is infinite and 'everything' exists, then there is a present king of France...somewhere. Bruno of course would say something like "The even divisors of three" = { }, but that would be circular since the definition of three is the successor of the successor of the successor of { }. And in any case he assumes arithmetic exists.
