In the set of rationals, for example, there can be "before" and an "after" without there being an "at", e.g. before and after sqrt(2). So your claim requires proofs whch tou do not have. > > In fact you are right - as so often. There is no "at infinity". The > vase is never empty.
The case starts empty, so WM is again trivially wrong.
