Peter Cameron over een oneindig aantal schapen

Counting is a less precise tool for infinite sets than for finite ones. The shepherdess who can count her flock of a hundred sheep will know if the wolf has taken one; but, if she has an infinite flock, she won’t notice until almost all of her sheep have been lost.
