And again you interpret as *the* diagonal the actual infinity of *all*
its elements.

*Every* FIS of the diagonal is a line.
What we cannot find is a last line and is a last FIS of the diagonal.
*Both* are unfindable. Therefore it is highly biased to talk about
*the* diagonal.

And there is no findable set of natural numbers (remember, we cannot
use "all natural numbers" and related sets) that would require more
than one line. Similarly there is no FIS of d that would require more
than one line. Since there is not more than every FIS of d and since
there is every line we can only talk about every FIS and line: For
every FIS of d there is a line of the list. And more is not in d.
