E. that there be no values f and g for which f gg ¼ 1 even though neither of f and g is 1. But we have that too, by the regularity requirement: for if f gg ¼ 1 and neither f nor g is 1, then neither f nor g is 0 either, and so f (0) ¼ g(0) ¼ 12; so ( f gg)(0) ¼ 12, so f gg 6¼ 1. The other important feature of this algebra is that it is complete with respect to cardinalities smaller than II: that is, for any subset S of V P with cardinality less than 13 There is such a predecessor of P, given that P is an initial ordinal.
