So that in the wild weird world of WMytheology, though not elsewhere,
one can have a thing which differing from each member of a list without
differing from all members of that list.

But note that that only happens in WMytheology.
Outside WMytheology, an infinite sequence differs from each of any set
of finite sequences, if only by being infinite instead of finite.
But according to WM, within his wild wild world of WMytheology an
infinite sequence can be identical to a finite sequence.
