Element of the set

If mathematicians cannot reduce the concept of "set" to other concepts, then they do not understand anything in mathematics. I answer the question: how are the elements of one set different from the elements of another set? The answer is very simple: numbers and units of measurements.

Today everything belongs to some kind of set (as mathematicians assure us). By the way, did you look at yourself in the mirror? Have you seen on your forehead a list of those sets to which you belong? And I have not seen such a list. I will say more - not a single thing in reality has a tag with a list of sets to which this thing belongs. Sets are shamans' inventions. How do they do it? Let's recall the history and see how the elements of the set looked like before the mathematician-shamans pulled them into their sets.

Once upon a time, when no one had heard of mathematics, and only trees and Saturn had rings, huge herds of wild elements of sets roamed the physical fields (after all, shamans had not yet invented mathematical fields). They looked something like this.

Yes, do not be surprised, from the point of view of mathematics, all the elements of sets are most similar to sea urchins - from one point, like needles, units of measurements stick out in all directions. For those who missed something, I remind you that any unit of measure can be represented geometrically as a segment of arbitrary length, and a number as a point. Geometrically, any value can be represented as a bunch of segments sticking out in different directions from one point. This point is point zero. I will not draw this work of geometric art (no inspiration), but you can easily imagine it.

What units of measurements form an element of the set? Any, describing this element from different points of view. These are the ancient units of measurement used by our ancestors and which everyone has long forgotten about. These are the modern units of measurement that we use now. These are units of measurement unknown to us that our descendants will come up with and which they will use to describe reality.

We figured out the geometry - the proposed model of the elements of the set has a clear geometric representation. What about physics? Units of measurement - this is the direct connection of mathematics with physics. If shamans do not recognize units of measurement as a full-fledged element of mathematical theories, this is their problem. Personally, I can’t imagine real math science without units of measurement. That is why, at the very beginning of the story about set theory, I spoke of it as a Stone Age.

But let us pass to the most interesting thing - to the algebra of elements of sets. Algebraically, any element of a set is a collection of different quantities. It looks like this.

I deliberately do not apply the conventions adopted in set theory, since we consider the element of the set in its natural environment before the advent of set theory. Each pair of letters designates a separate quantity consisting of a number indicated by the letter "n" and a unit of measurement indicated by the letter "a". Indexes indicate that the numbers and units are different. One element of the set can consist of an infinite number of quantities (how much imagination we have and our descendants). Each value is geometrically depicted as a separate segment. In the example with the sea urchin, one value is one needle.

How do shamans form sets of different elements? In fact, by units of measurement or by numbers. Without understanding anything in mathematics, they take different sea urchins and carefully examine them in search of the only needle by which they form a multitude. If there is such a needle, then this element belongs to the set, if there is no such needle, it is an element of another set. Shamans tell us tales about thought processes and a single whole.

As you may have guessed, one and the same element can belong to very different sets. Further I will show you how the sets, subsets and other attributes of shamans are formed.

Set and multiset

The concepts of “set” and “multiset” are two trump ace in the sleeves of a sharpie, one in each sleeve. The sharpie takes out from the sleeve that trump ace, which is more convenient for him to get. In any case, the sharpie always wins. In the same way, any mathematician will always justify set theory.

There can’t be two identical elements in a set, but if there are identical elements in a set, such a set is called a “multiset.” Intelligent beings can never understand such a logic of absurdity. This is the level of talking parrots and trained monkeys. Mathematicians act as ordinary animal trainer, preaching to us their absurd ideas.

Once the engineers who built the bridge, during the testing of the bridge, were in a boat under the bridge. If the bridge collapsed, a mediocre engineer died under the rubble of his creation. If the bridge could withstand the load, a talented engineer built other bridges.

No matter how mathematicians hide behind the phrase “mathematics studies abstract concepts”, there is one umbilical cord that inextricably connects them with reality. This umbilical cord is money. We apply the mathematical set theory to the mathematicians themselves.

We studied mathematics very well and now we are giving out salaries. Here comes a mathematician for his money. We count the whole amount to him and lay out on his table on different piles, into which we place banknotes of the same denomination. Then we take one banknote from each pile and hand over to the mathematician his "mathematical set of salary." We explain the mathematics that he will receive the remaining bills only when he proves that a set without the same elements is not equal to a set with the same elements. After that, the most interesting will happen.

First of all, the logic of the deputies will work: "It can be applied to others, but not to me!" Further, the mathematician will assure us that on banknotes of the same denomination there are different numbers of banknotes, therefore they cannot be considered the same elements of the set. Well, we count the salary in coins - there are no numbers on the coins. Here, the mathematician will frantically recall physics: different coins have different amounts of dirt, the crystal structure and arrangement of atoms of each coin is unique ...

And now I have the most interesting question: where is the line behind which the elements of the multiset turn into the elements of the set and vice versa? Such a facet does not exist - shamans decide everything, science is absent here.

You see that the same set of elements is both a multitude and a multiset at the same time. How right? And here the mathematician-shaman-schuller takes an ace from his sleeve and begins to tell us either about the multitude or the multiset. In any case, he will convince us that the theory of sets is correct.

To understand how modern shamans apply set theory to reality, it is enough to answer one question: how do the elements of one set differ from the elements of another set? I will show you how to do it.

Set theory

Set theory is the stone age of mathematics. Only shamans know how to properly form the set. Let's look at set theory from the side and reveal some of the secrets of shamans. To understand the essence of set theory, it is necessary to consider another mathematical concept - a function. The function sets the correspondence between the elements of two sets. Each element from the herd of hunters is associated with one or more elements from the herd of prey, each element from the herd of prey is assigned one or more elements from the herd of hunters. Only shamans know what kind of herd belongs to and how to divide prey properly.

What is set theory? This is a herd theory. What will happen if we combine a herd (set) mathematicians and a herd (set) sheep: sheeps with a mathematical education or mathematicians with sheep’s brains? I don’t know what set theory says about the results of such a union, but in reality mathematicians will have a great barbecue picnic. I have nothing against set theory, as one of the mathematical tools. But to stand up for “scientific” theories based on such a primitive and vague concept is already too much.

Any theory should be tested by practice, even mathematical. I will show you an example of the practical application of set theory by the example of such concepts as “set” and “multiset”.
