Yes!

WM's infinite diagram:
1
2 1
3 2 1
...

It is clear to anyone who is not, LIKE WM, a true believer in finitism,
that no row contains as a member every number in that diagram but every
column does as a member every member in that diagram.

Thus WM claims the truth of falsehoods.

While standard logic may not be allowed in WM's wild weird world of
WMytheology, it is allowed in Mathematics.

We do!

WM should try it some time, he might even learn to like it.

One can find more than two, for example all the numbers in any one
column. Or ,indeed, any non-empty set of naturals without a maximum
member.

Try to find any line (row) that contains all the numbers in any column.
Fail!
