Theorem isset 2692
Description: Two ways to say "𝐴 is a set": A class 𝐴 is a member of the universal class V (see df-v 2688) if and only if the class 𝐴 exists (i.e. there exists some set 𝑥 equal to class 𝐴). Theorem 6.9 of [Quine] p. 43. Notational convention: We will use the notational device "𝐴 ∈ V " to mean "𝐴 is a set" very frequently, for example in uniex 4359. Note the when 𝐴 is not a set, it is called a proper class. In some theorems, such as uniexg 4361, in order to shorten certain proofs we use the more general antecedent 𝐴𝑉 instead of 𝐴 ∈ V to mean "𝐴 is a set."

Note that a constant is implicitly considered distinct from all variables. This is why V is not included in the distinct variable list, even though df-clel 2135 requires that the expression substituted for 𝐵 not contain 𝑥. (Also, the Metamath spec does not allow constants in the distinct variable list.) (Contributed by NM, 26-May-1993.)
