Which notion, at least as expressed by WM, is nonsense outside of
The notion that in any context there is some natural beyond which one is
forbidden to go is nonsense.
Mathematical induction, for example, says
If f(n) is true for the first n in |N
and if f(n+1) is true for n+1 in |N whenever f(n) is true for n in |N,
then for all n in |N, f(n) is true.
Thust in WMytheology, mathematical induction cannot be made to work.
