Lines are not ?made up? of points. When you say ?made up? you imply stacked or connected, one after the other. But as has been established here, even by some of your own posts, points cannot be stacked or connected. Thus, lines cannot be "made up" of points.
Lines can be said to be ?made up? of smaller lines.
Most (probably all) of the issues you are having in understanding the answers you are being given, and that you requested, is that you have a poorly conceived notion of ?point?. Points are dimensionless. That doesn?t mean they have zero length. That means they don?t even have the notion of length.
Points - ZERO dimensions Lines - ONE dimension Squares - TWO dimensions Cubes - THREE dimensions
You are using notions (like "made up of") that require at least one dimension with notions (like points) that don?t have any dimensions.
