x=x

Clarify

(12 points)

Man, I'm a nerd for saying this, but here goes:

If x is a set:
Every member of x is a member of x.

If x is an element of a set:
if x = k, k a fixed element  implies k = x (because '=' is symmetric), implies x = x (because '=' is transitive),
which means, for any x equal to k, k is equal to x and x is equal to x.
if x does not equal k for any k belonging to any set, x is not an element of a set.

If x is a fixed element:
x is equal to itself.

i believe it said "Clarify"

i'm fond of a mental excersize that involves imagining an object that keeps getting bigger and bigger (or smaller and smaller).  sort of a way to "stretch" your mind.  i always reach a point where i can no longer continue without changing scales.  this, of course, always leads me to pondering fractal dimensions and scaling.  why is it that we are comfortable at certain scales and have difficulty at the "in between" areas?  information blocking? not sure.

surely one could make a map that is a map of itself, though? right - or is does this intrisicly violate the definition of a map?
