Axiom ax-nin 4078
 Description: State the axiom of anti-intersection. Axiom P1 of [Hailperin] p. 6. This axiom sets up boolean operations on sets. Note on this and the following axioms: this axiom, ax-xp 4079, ax-cnv 4080, ax-1c 4081, ax-sset 4082, ax-si 4083, ax-ins2 4084, ax-ins3 4085, and ax-typlower 4086 are from Hailperin and are designed to implement the Stratification Axiom of Quine. A well-formed formula using only propositional symbols, predicate symbols, and ∈ is "stratified" iff you can make a (metalogical) mapping from the variables to the natural numbers such that any formulas of the form x = y have the same number, and any formulas of the form x ∈ y have x as one less than y. Quine's stratification axiom states that there is a set corresponding to any stratified formula. Since we cannot state stratification from within the logic, we use Hailperin's axioms and prove existence of stratified sets using Hailperin's algorithm.
