About this page

This is an advanced mathematical concept, so I think there's no need to shy away from equations or hide them away at the end.

The main difficulty in bringing the concept across is in the confusion created by dealing with a set of sets. Most people are conditioned to think of set elements kind of like "atoms", in a way. The article should try to minimize this problem.
