We perceive the objects of set theory, just as we perceive with our senses

Gödel proved the classical relative consistency of the axiom V = L [Putnam]

Settheory paradoxes are no worse than sense deception in physics

The Continuum Hypothesis is not inconsistent with the axioms of set theory [Clegg]

If set theory is consistent, we cannot refute or prove the Continuum Hypothesis [Hart,WD]
