[...] On the other hand, if   X   is infinite then [see reading I 4 2] there exist distinct elements   x, x, x,...   in   x.   The compliment of   { x, x, x,... }   in   X   is a subset   Y,   so that

X   =   { x, x, x,... } Y        and        { x, x, x,... } Y   =   .

A one-one correspondence between   X   and its proper subset   { x, x,... } Y   is given by the function which sends each   x   into   x   and each element of   Y   into itself.   This proves the "only if" part, completing the proof.
