It is true for all elements. No mentioning of collection. I am not at all interested whether these elements form something like a collection. Of course you cannot say that the collection of real numbers is a real number. But when all real numbers have been removed, the collection has gone too. > > Now let P be (can remove the collection without changing > the union of the remaining lines).

Then Cantor's argument fails from the scratch. Cantor uses the fact that removing every line from the set L of possible duplicates of the anti-diagonal d does not leave any line. So d is not in the set L. Of course, we have also that d is not the set L, but that is not in question.
