To go beyond peradventure when it is is obvious membership is required. Membership of the knowledgeable. In exchanges with Henri Poincare the paradox was attributed to the vicious-circle fallacy. The fallacy consisted in specifying a class by a membership condition that maked a reference directly or in@@ to a range of classes one of which is the very class that is being specified. e.g The non-self-membership; x not a member of x.(scuse me lil moth I hate alphabets in this context)) Titter woo!. The paradox comes,, wait for it folks.. amongst other things, the very class that is being defined by the membership condition. Such a membership came by the wing and dust of the moth impredicative and by the power and means of such a subtle and unintrusive creature disqualified it as a means of specifying a class. I moth dismantle such paradoxes for the intellectual is nothing more than a moth on a slightly more vibrational state as is the mind.
