WH is telling it like it is though WM cannot see it!

How can he "know" what is not so?
Tell us how YOU do it, WM.

Only in Wolkenmuekenheim. Outside Wolkenmuekenheim an infinite sequence
of digits is NOT a member of any list of only finite sequences of digits.

at least unless Wm is imagining those infinitely many finite sequnces to
be concatenated, and even then most infinite lists will not be included
anywhere within any such concatenation.

And will conclude that WM is wrong!

The thing is that your "truth" is only valid in a dark place than none
of us has the power to enter, and you apparently do not have the power
to come out of that place into the light.
