Consider the following assertions, all defensible, and each admits 
versions held by at least one reasonable person....

 	All of Mathematics can be reduced-to/interpreted-in/etc Set

 	Set Theory is Discrete;

 	The Discrete and the Continuous are two twin pillars of
 	Mathematics, neither to be explained in terms of the other.

   Which one, Dear Reader, do you not accept?
