comment In (relatively) simple words: What is an inverse limit?
I hate diagrams, they never help and they almost always confuse. But I suppose other people might find this helpful. So thanks!

comment Advantage of accepting non-measurable sets
If you plan on trying to explain to me anything in set theory, you should perhaps learn first. I mean, it's just repeating other people's words (e.g. repeat Kanamori's words, or even Solovay's words). It's so easy even someone like me can apparently do it. But what you're doing is putting words together haphazardly and you hope that whoever is on the other side of the discussion will be scared to question your set theoretic technobabble. Unfortunately for you, this time you're up against a set theorist, so the technobabble is not scary, it's just silly.

I will give it a try later today. Thanks.

comment Which of the following sets have the cardinality the same as $R$
I feel that this question, literally this question, has been asked like three times now. Edit: Yup.

comment Advantage of accepting non-measurable sets
"The construction Solovay does is described well in Kanamori's "The Higher Infinite", and it forces the continuum to size of the inaccessible, then it truncates the L-part of the construction to the ordinals below the inaccessible." -- here I am repeating you. And no, this is not what Solovay is doing. Just adding inaccessible-many random reals will produce a model which may be of interest (e.g. if that inaccessible is in fact measurable, then the Lebesgue measure can be extended to measure every set of reals), but truncating that model at the inaccessible will not produce a model of ZF.

comment Advantage of accepting non-measurable sets
I am amazed by your inability to grasp that you might not understand something. If all singletons are measured zero, a random real is not in any of them, thus making it nonexistent. Solovay's Random real are indeed nonexistent within a given model of set theory. They are generic for the forcing, and again generic is a technical term. From the rest of your comment it's not hard to see that you miss both the motivation and methods used by Solovay. But I bet it's easier for you to just continue with your convictions that you are infallible.

comment What is the name of this similarity measure for sets?
This can probably benefit from additional tags. The set theory ones, however, are not amongst them.

comment Advantage of accepting non-measurable sets
Ron, random real is a technical term. And I don't think it means what you think it means. The second comment, by the way, is arrogant and should be deleted. If you are the only person who is right, convincing others is not going to be possible if you are full of arrogance and conceit. Not to mention that you're also wrong...
