A propos IX 226 ~
Empty set/zero class/(s): unlike definition gap (e.g. divide continuity through zero) - real gap: a well-defined condition is not met, e.g. primes between 31 and 37: 5 natural numbers do not satisfy the condition, 0 natural numbers fulfill the condition - for an infinite number of rational numbers and real numbers the condition is not defined - universal class/(s) if there is nothing that fulfills the condition it is questionable whether we can talk of a set (because it does not match a term) - the other way around: what is should be the condition for the universal class?
