Dear Bruno, You talk about "some non mechanical super-entities (which exist also in the arithmetical reality)". This way of reasoning throws us into the realm of the philosophy of mathematics, in which you clearly pursue a neo-platonism in the traces of Tegmark, Godel, Husserl, Tiles, against

Dear Mark, the named set theory does not solve the Russell paradox. Therefore it would be better to use, in such approaches, the best theory available, i.e., the Fraenkel-Zermelo sets. In turn, the latter displays some limits: for example, the need of a set with infinite elements.
