Hi Mark,

Non Well founded sets? Oh yeah! I have been signing their praises for a long time! I especially like all of Jon Barwise <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jon_Barwise>'s work on them. It is exactly where we can formally model self-representation and allows for a nice finite model of the mereology of infinite sets (if we add a cut-off requirement).

I think to Bruno, this would be "too rich" already.


I am trying to get Bruno to see the importance of a cut-off but that would require that he admit that comp has an error in step 8. This error can be fixed by a weakening of universality but he wants nothing to do with this suggestion. :_(
