I am not a Lojbanist, but I might want to become one. Sorry, I was just putting that out there.

I have a request:

Could someone please define, explain (to me), and provide examples for all of the characteristics of a set? I know that it may be slightly off-topic, but I would really like to understand them. As I have seen it, Lojban does inclue sets (lo'e?), and I may be interested in learning the language.

As it is, I really only currently want to understand sets. But, I will make a deal: if I am sufficiently helped, then I will put in an effort to learn at least the rudiments of the language :). Deal?

Thank you all who are expected to help.

A set is a collection of distinct objects, considered as an object in its own right. Sets are one of the most fundamental concepts in mathematics. Although it was invented at the end of the 19th century, set theory is now a ubiquitous part of mathematics, and can be used as a foundation from which nearly all of mathematics can be derived. In mathematics education, elementary topics such as Venn diagrams are taught at a young age, while more advanced concepts are taught as part of a university degree.

In philosophy, sets are ordinarily considered to be abstract objects[1][2][3][4] physically represented by groups of objects. For instance; three cups on a table when spoken of together as "the cups", or the chalk lines on a board in the form of the opening and closing curly bracket symbols along with any other symbols in between the two bracket symbols. However, proponents of mathematical realism including Penelope Maddy have argued that sets are concrete objects.[1]
