Usenet is a rather poor publishing medium, but Muckenheim won't be the
first to suggest, in writing, that the natural numbers are a continuum
and have infinite elements.
For example, in a theory where only finite sets are regular, the set
of all of them contains itself: this is well-known as Russell's
As well where the hyperintegers model the integers, those are
hyperfinite. This is in print.
That's not to discount Boucher's F nor Paris and Kirby's non-standard,
countable, natural integers.
Usenet is a rather poor publishing mechanism.
