Which is, despite WM's petty objections, a well recognized part of mathematics.

I do not speak to everyone's objections to transfinite set theories, but to WM's, and both I and others note that WM's alleged counterproofs fail on purely logical grounds, as he reveals himself to be both logically and mathematically incompetent, being unable either to analyse or create logical arguments.
There are objectors to infinite sets, like the supporters of IST, whose case is at last presented logically. Wm would do well to learn to emulate them if he ever wishes to impose his views on anyone other than is captive students.

Psychiatry might help WM get his act together, but judges at law would have no more right to impose their judgements on mathematics than mathematicians would have to impose their judgements on the law.
Since WM brings up the issue of psychiatry, perhaps his unconscious is aware of his need for its help.
