Take $V$ to be the set of ultrafilters on $\omega$ and let $E \subset P(V)$ be the smallest subset closed under arbitrary unions containing all sets of the form $[X]= \{ p \in V: X \in p \}\subset V$ where $X \subset \omega$ is infinite and co-infinite.

**Fact:** The hyper-graph $(V,E)$ is Hausdorff.

*Proof:* Let $p, q \in V$ be distinct, then there is some $X \in p$ with $\,\omega \backslash X \in q$. As such, $p \in [X]\in E$, $q \in [\omega \backslash X]\in E$ and $[X] \cap [\omega \backslash X] = \emptyset$.)

**Fact:** The set $D = \{ p \in V: (\exists s \subset \omega)(|s| < \omega \wedge s \in p)\}$ of principal ultrafilters on $\omega$ is countable and dense with respect to $(V,E)$.

*Proof:* For any $\mathcal E \in E$, there is some infinite and co-infinite $X \subset \omega$ with $[X] \subset \cal E$; since $X$ is non-empty we can find some $n\in X$, in which case $p = \{ Y \subset \omega: n \in Y\} \in D\cap \cal E$.)

**Fact:** Assuming $\sf AC$: $2^{|D|}=\mathfrak{c} < 2^{\mathfrak{c}} \leq \vert E \vert$.

*Proof:* Let $\mathcal{A} = \{ A_\alpha: \alpha \in \mathfrak{c}\}\subset P(\omega)$ be an almost disjoint family of infinite subsets of $\omega$ of size $\mathfrak{c}$ and for any non-empty $I \subset \mathfrak{c}$ define $\mathcal{E}(I) = \bigcup \{ [A_\gamma]: \gamma \in I \} $ . It follows that,

$$I \neq J \implies \mathcal{E}(I) \neq \mathcal{E}(J)$$

since, without loss of generality, we can assume there is some $\gamma \in I \backslash J$, in which case any non-principal ultrafilter containing $A_\gamma$ will witness $\mathcal{E}(I) \backslash \mathcal{E}(J) \neq\emptyset$ (that such an ultrafilter exists is a consequence of $\sf AC$.) Nothing that $E$ is closed under unions, we have $\mathcal{E}(I) \in E$ and it follows that $2^{\vert D \vert} = \mathfrak{c} < \vert P(\mathfrak{c}) \vert \leq \vert E \vert$.
