Yet another case of The Barber Shaves All Those in Town Who Do Not Shave 
Themselves: the question of whether a set is a member of itself always 
leads to antimonies.  Humans always draw a line in the sand and say: 
Beyond This Point, We Shall Not Go.  Here, there Be Dragons.

Another example of this sort of thing is in SQL: In SQL, you have a 
tri-valued logic system, where:  NULL ThetaOp Anything Equals NULL.

And you have the group by statement, who groups together things with a 
Comparision Truth Value of Equal.

Except it also groups together NULLs :-)
