In that you Show something for Each Set of Cardinality n e N.
You show Nothing for the Set N.

As in "Any". Further than that, you are Highly Confused.
P(x) is True For All x e N, does Not imply P(N) is Necessarily True.
For you, P(y) is a Set of Cardinality y can Not Exhaust The Set Q.

Certainly Not! You are Mistaken.

BTW, have you Figured out how to Wriggle Out of the Fact that your System shows that the Set N, which contains More Elements than Any Natural Number, is Finite?
