Note that if an infinite list of naturals is created, there need not be
any naturals not listed in it.

Note that if an infinite list of rationals is created, there need not be
any ratinals not listed in it.

All Cantor says is that if any infinite list of reals is created it will
necessarily omit at least one real.

And Cantor has proved it far beyond WM's poorer power to disprove
things.

That "pure accident" is a proof far beyond WM's power to disprove,
at least outside his wild weird world of WMytheology

Show me two lines that contain more that the larger.

On the other hand, the set of all odd numbered lines ( having an odd
largest value) unions to give al members of all lines.

And includes all members of all lines.

Only because the set of all infinitely many lines is well -ordered by
inclusion, so any non-emyptu set of it has a first member, but that does
not justify WM's insanity on the subject.

WM may only claim that that holds in his wild weird world of
WMytheology, as everywhere else it is trivially false.

I will stop my provable, even if occasionally unproven, claims only
when WM has stopped his unproven and provably unprovable claims about
what goes on OUTSIDE of his his wild weird world of WMytheology.

What WM claims for inclusion monotony is nonsense
outside of his wild weird world of WMytheology,
and logic does not exist there, but only outside of it.

Two lines are not enough.
Three lines are not enough.
A finite set of lines is not enough.
Nothing less numerous that an infinite set of lines
is a large enough set of lines.

Then produce such a set, WM,and prove me wrong, or admit that WM cannot
produce any infinite set of lines of WM's very own matrix that does NOT
contain all members of all lines of WM's very own matrix.

And until WM can produce an infinite set of lines which does NOT contain
all members of all lines, he remains WRONG!

Any subset of a well-ordered set is also well orered. So what?

Belief in infinities does not violate any of the principles that govern
proper mathematics, it only violates those idiotic anti-principles that
seem to misgovern WM's wild weird world of WMytheology.

So now WM's own "matrix" contains less then two lines?
