For all x in |N, x -> (x+n) bijects |N onto Rest(n). So what?

For all n in |N, FISON(n) \/ Rest(n) = |N. So what?

1/|Rest(n})| is NAN (Not A Number).
So any such sequence of NANs can only converge to a NAN.

But it is! So that we see that what goes on WM's wild weird world of
WMytheology is unmathemtaical.

It is enough for each natural other than the first to be the successor
of some other natural, which is the case outside WMytheology.
