But having any line as an individual line implies the existence of a an individual natural NOT in that line.
So which line can be used as an individual line without thereby defining (as an individual natural) the successor of its largest member?

As soon as it is "there", so is the successor of its largest member and the successor of the line's index number.

Unless there are all natural numbers, induction cannot be said to prove statements of the form: For all n in N, f(n) > > > " Try to find some individuals that are not in one and the same line. > > Fail." > > Obviously, you will fail.
The index of a line and the successor of that index are never both in that indexed line. > > > If that does fail, then they must be all on one line.
WM's quantifier dyslexia strikes again. For all P there is an L with P in L A(P) E versus There is an L such that for all p p in L
TRUE:For every pair of naturals there is a line containing both. versus FALSE:There is a line containing every pair of naturals.

If it does not then inductive arguments are invalid. "P(1) and for all n in N, P(n) implies P(n+1)" is no longer possible unless one can truthfully say "for all n in N"
Which WM now claims is not possible.
