I was reading a little about measure theory, and the measure of a singleton is zero.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

So why couldn't we just describe the reals as an uncountable number of singletons which each have zero measure and then union all of these singletons.

Maybe the union only works for countable sets when talking about measure.
