You can go on and on, in infinity, the reservoir will not be empty.
So that the set (reservoir) of naturals must be actually infinite.
No problem!
But that is just the opposite of WM's usual claim that there is no such thing as an infinite reservoir of all natural numbers from which to draw.
I.e., in WM's wild weird world of WMytheology no such reservoir, or totality, or set is allowed to exist.
