That erroneous notion can be expressed, for example, as:
lei relmeina'u lei kacna'u cu xadba le ka kaclai
The even numbers are half the integers in number.

Apparent numerosity?

Certainly in any given finite interval (with more than one number
anyway) the integers outnumber the evens, but not in total.
