Nonsense!

Either m > n or n > m or m = n, but only one of these.

So either m > n and both are in every line that m is in,
or n > m and both are in every line that n is in,
or both are in every line the either is in.

So again WM is off in his dreamworld of Wolkenmuekenheim where anything
he wishes for, except reality, occurs.
