It is only about EACH natural number,
which WM acknowledges is quite different.

Not even thatn, only for FISONs!

Only for each, not for all.

Only for each, not for all.

Everyone other than WM is!

N enueates W when Q has been well-ordered SA dollows:
Once again, since WM is having so much trouble understanding it:

Each member of Q has UNIQUE representation as m/n, with m being an
integer, n being a positive integer, and with m and n having no common
factor greater than 1.

Order Q by increasing values of abs(m)+n, and within equal values of
abs(m)+n by increasing values of m.

Note that for positive m, m/1 has successor -(m+1)/1.
For any other form, m/n will have successor of form
(m + k)/(n - k) for some natural k with 0 < k < n.

This is a well-ordering of Q with a first rational, 0/1, and for each
rational a uniquely defined successor rational, and with no rationals
left out.

Thus each rational is now enumerated by the natural number marking its
position in the above well-ordering, everywhere outside of WM's
worthless world of WMytheology.

The SET of all natural numbers certainly is an existing notion
everywhere outside of WM's worthless world of WMytheology.

Outside of WM's worthless world of WMytheology, N is actually
infinite in the sense that one can inject N into a proper subset of N.
E,g., f: N -> N: n -> 2*n is such a function.

Is mostly false in proper mathematics.
