Things that cannot be proved from prior assumptions must be themselves
assumed, so until WM can give us a complete list of all the things he
assumes without proof, he is in no position to claim, or prove, any of
his alleged consequences of those assumptions.

There are lots of subjects of discourse outside of mathematics whose
"things" need not be at all mathematical.
Including WM's wild weird world of WMytheology.

One can mention that there are real numbers that are defined as members
of large sets but which do not have individual definitions.

WM has just claimed that everything that can be mentioned can be
counted, so let him present a counting of the set of all subsets of the
set of integers, 2^|N, which certainly can bem and has been mentioned,
but is provably not countable.

WM again makes a claim that he cannot justify because there is a simple
proof that his claim is wrong.

Then it is shame that WM, in his condition, is not wise enough to use
any of the many offered to him.
