I heard something along the lines of when you accept the axiom of choice as true, you can then prove using some abstract set theory that by dividing a sphere, you can divide it and then put it together so that it is bigger than it originally was????(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Is the math behind this proof difficult? And is this true?
