Example text

Accordingly, it is not a model for three objects but for its infinite number. Moreover, each of these objects is indistinguishable from the other ones, which is contrary to the assumption that ‘‘He is not the Father who is the Son, nor is the Son he who is the Father, nor is the Holy Spirit he who is the Father or the Son’’ (CCC 254). Moreover, the distinction has its roots in the mutual relations of the three persons of the Trinity. One should, therefore, construct a three element model, in which the objects are identical with one another, yet their origin is different.

33 For instance, the set of natural numbers N can be divided into three subsets that are equipollent with it: A = {k = 3n: n[N}, B = {k = 3n ? 1: n[N}, C = N - (A[B). However, none of these three sets contains set N. Besides, such construction rather than for three objects would be a model for four ones: A, B, C, N. 7 Paradoxes of Infinity 31 Let us consider three sequences with elements belonging to a set {1,2,3}, defined as follows: 8 > < 1; for ¼ 4 k or n ¼ 4 k þ 1; an ¼ 2; for ¼ 4 k þ 2; > : 3; for ¼ 4 k þ 3; 8 > < 1; for n ¼ 4 k; bn ¼ 2; for n ¼ 4k þ 1 or n ¼ 4 k þ 2; > : 3; for n ¼ 4 k þ 3; 8 > < 1; for ¼ 4 k; cn ¼ > : 2; for ¼ 4 k þ 1; 3; for ¼ 4 k þ 2 or n ¼ 4 k þ 3; where k is a natural number (k [ N).

It is easy to see that up to this point the symbolically advanced Lenzen proposal is hardly different materially from Ajdukiewicz’s single sentence diagnosis. According to Lenzen, the proper solution of the paradox is the following construction, which uses base logic, supplemented with the classical general quantifier V and ten following definitions: D14.
