Theorem omex 8060
 Description: The existence of omega (the class of natural numbers). Axiom 7 of [TakeutiZaring] p. 43. This theorem is proved assuming the Axiom of Infinity and in fact is equivalent to it, as shown by the reverse derivation inf0 8038. A finitist (someone who doesn't believe in infinity) could, without contradiction, replace the Axiom of Infinity by its denial ; this would lead to by omon 6695 and (the universe of all sets) by fineqv 7735. The finitist could still develop natural number, integer, and rational number arithmetic but would be denied the real numbers (as well as much of the rest of mathematics). In deference to the finitist, much of our development is done, when possible, without invoking the Axiom of Infinity; an example is Peano's axioms peano1 6703 through peano5 6707 (which many textbooks prove more easily assuming Infinity).
