Spooky Sets

Spooky Sets

Math deals with sets. And finite sets have an integer number of members.

But why?

Math is all about extending definitions and concepts. So why does the number of members of a set need to be an integer?

What about a rational number, or an irrational number. Or if you want very spooky sets what about a complex number!

How could this extension be done? I don't know.

And if x is the number of members would we still have the number of subsets = 2^x
