Yes, it is the limit that is not a term of the sequence. So there are
never all natural numbers in a number as indices. The union of lines
cannot contain more elements than one line contains. On the other
hand, according to set theory, the union of all lines contains more
indices, namely |N, than than all lines. Contradiction.
