WRONG! for your list, L

FIS1(L) = 1,

FIS2(L) = 1, 12,

FIS3(L) = 1, 12, 123

and so on

whereas for the diagonal, D = 123...

FIS1(D) = 1

FIS2(D) = 12

FIS3(D) = 123

and so on

So the list of FISs of an endless list like D can never be the same as

the the list itself.

But note for an antidiagonal to L, like A = 234...

FIS1(A) = 2,

FIS2(A) = 23

FIS3(A) = 234

and so on

But no list is coFIS with the list of its FISs.

WRONG! SEE ABOVE!

No list is ever coFIS with the list of its FISs.

WRONG! WM's list l is a list of lists whereas the d is a list of digits

They can never be coFIS.

What is claimed to be impossible by WM in his Wolkenmuekenheim is often

trivial elsewhere, and what is impossible elsewhere WM often claims is

trivial in his Wolkenmuekenheim.

So the wise are not deluded by what goes on in Wolkenmuekenheim.

The only FIS of WMs list of lists, l, which is at all like a FIS of d

is the very first one, after which they are all entirely different.
