**The notion of ‘Unity’ [‘One-ness’] in Mathematics is the struggle to define Sets and Classes and Groupings** **[Cantor, Von Neumann et al].**

**The inquiry into Unity taken to its limit, the notions of wholeness and consistency,** **required immersion into Set Theory [again, Peano pioneered its early application]. And in Set Theory they hit head-on into the Self-Loop.**

**The Self-Eating Expression comes alive from the shadows anytime something is used on itself, anytime we are wading, knowingly or otherwise, into the swamp of the Self-Loop.**

**The single tripper-upper? The notion of Self-Reference [recursion, repetition, reflection and numerous variants].**

**[Georg Cantor famously accused Immanuel Kant of being a ‘Mathematical Ignoramus’. This is beyond funny. It was Kant who in his ***Critique of Pure Reason* warns the reader that he may not use his Principles of Knowing’ in analyzing ‘The Principles of Knowing’; see the Posts.

**In the wonder-world of the Self-Loop, the word with the most number of posted definitions the last time I checked seems to be the word ‘Set’, as in Mathematical Set.**
