Theorem aleph0 7626
Description: The first infinite cardinal number, discovered by Georg Cantor in 1873, has the same size as the set of natural numbers  om (and under our particular definition is also equal to it). In the literature, the argument of the aleph function is often written as a subscript, and the first aleph is written 
aleph_0. Exercise 3 of [TakeutiZaring] p. 91. Also Definition 12(i) of [Suppes] p. 228. From Moshé Machover, Set Theory, Logic, and Their Limitations, p. 95: "Aleph...the first letter in the Hebrew alphabet...is also the first letter of the Hebrew word...(einsoph, meaning infinity), which is a cabbalistic appellation of the deity. The notation is due to Cantor, who was deeply interested in mysticism." (Contributed by NM, 21-Oct-2003.) (Revised by Mario Carneiro, 13-Sep-2013.)
