I looked at the article and I understand that for that particular case. 
However that case fell back in the definition on an already existing 
infinite domain of the same order namely Z. There is also a similar 
definition in the Book for Odd numbers.

In my case I cannot fall back on an existing finite domain, or I do not 
know how to explore/exploite it with Boolean.

I am thinking of a domain named Irany having elements 
{North,East,South,West}. How can I do that without a reference to a 
more basic domain as foundation and expect that 
Element[NorthWest,Irany] will give me False?

Thanks ahead,
