If it is "any finite line" it would have to be of more than one length,
both of length 1 and of length 2 and of length 3, and d=so on.

Actual infiniteness of d's line length only requires that foe any finite
line, d is longer than that finite line, which is the case everywhere
outside of Wolkenmuekenheim .

Then what you call matheology rules mathematics!

At last that long and longer yet.

MY d has length greater than 1, and greater than 2, and greater than any
natural number that you, or anyone else, can chose.

Any line which is not of length greater than any natural one can choose
must be of length less than or equal to some natural one can choose.

And such lines are finite.
