Normally we distinguish between an element and the set containing that single element, correct? But if the empty set is nothing (or the set that contains nothing) then the set {[tex]\phi[/tex]} = {} = [tex]\phi[/tex]. Is it proper to say that the empty set and it's power sets are the same? What would that make the cardinality of the empty set, simply zero?
