For the given list this is precisely wrong. I constructed the list
such that never more than one line is necessary to contain anything
you can define (in potential infinity). And was not just that what you
were interested in?

On the contrary. That is no exception. That is the last line that
always exists in potential infinity but cannot be known.

No? The numbers of those lines that contain what, according to your
assertion, cannot be contained in one line, are unknowable too. Or can
you name them?
