The Generic Orientation finds its mathematical expression in Cohen's work on the continuum problem, which proceeds to show that if we admit certain carefully delineated 'indiscernible' or 'generic' sets into a model for set theory, we produce new models in which the power of the continuum exceeds that of the natural numbers by 'as much as one likes, so that the power set of [[omega].sub.n] may be assigned any cardinality at all that is greater than [[omega].sub.0] (with the single exception that the cardinal selected not be cofinal with [[omega].sub.0]; that is, it cannot be [omega][[omega].sub.0]).
Then [[bar.[epsilon]'(X) = {[bar.E] | E [member of] [epsilon](X), [bar.E] [subset] [bar.[E.sub.0]]} is cofinal and we have [bar.L](X) = [[union].sub.[bar.E][member of][[bar.[epsilon]'(X)] [bar.E] and [??](X) = lim[bar.E][member of][[bar.[epsilon]'(X)] c([bar.E]).
