Actually I’ve enjoyed the infinity posts, but once you start talking about the ‘size’ of a set I can’t see why it doesn’t undo the initial infinity logic? I’m happy to accept that there’s an infinite amount of primes, and that there’s an infinite amount of counting numbers, but by saying that some numbers are uncountable (reals) is like saying some countable numbers aren’t prime. Why is the countable set so different to any other arbitrary set (primes, evens, fibonacci)?
