Got a question concerning the Burali-Forti special Paradox. It starts with Let $\Omega$ be the set of all ordinals. Since $\Omega$ carries all the properties of an ordinal number it is an ordinal number itself.
You can find there my rather clumsy attempts to explain Burali-Forti. (I.e., that there is no set of all ordinals.)
