Who said so?
I said if existing, then finite or pot infinite.
Now you return if pot infinite then existing.
Try to understand: A ==> B does not imply B ==> A.
Then you may go on to learn logic step by step, but not before

Yes he made the same step. And his followers gladly accepted it. He
exchanged quantifyers on his "extended integers":
"For every integer n, there exists integer m: m >= n"
"There exists integer m, such that for every integer n: m >= n."
No reason to be proud about "understanding" that.
