Which only recreates those infinitely many finite elements in a
different way!

Then WM is saying that he, at least, cannot use induction to prove that
every element of an infinite set has some property?

To biject two sets when one of them is not finite, does not ever reduce
the size of the other to finiteness.

I would like to se WM try to prove it without induction.

But, according to WM, there cannot really be infinitely many equations,
at least in Wolkenmuekenheim.

But you now claim it.

Why, when YOU make them so often.
