Axiom ax-inf2 8421
 Description: A standard version of Axiom of Infinity of ZF set theory. In English, it says: there exists a set that contains the empty set and the successors of all of its members. Theorem zfinf2 8422 shows it converted to abbreviations. This axiom was derived as theorem axinf2 8420 above, using our version of Infinity ax-inf 8418 and the Axiom of Regularity ax-reg 8380. We will reference ax-inf2 8421 instead of axinf2 8420 so that the ordinary uses of Regularity can be more easily identified. The reverse derivation of ax-inf 8418 from ax-inf2 8421 is shown by theorem axinf 8424. (Contributed by NM, 3-Nov-1996.)
