But if it is the limit, even if unknowable, it can not have any
successor, which makes it NOT a natural number.

The "limit" must without any sucsessor, thus NAN (not a natural).

WM does that!

If one can distinguish natural numbers from things which are not natural
numbers WHY is there no set of all natural numbers in WMYTHEOLOGY?

Note that there is such a set everywhere else!

Your LIST of lines is constructed so that there is no line containing
all the elements in all the lines, but in any decent form of set theory,
the union of the lines (considered as the union of the set of their sets
of elements) must exist, and that union, appropriately ordered, is d.

Thus WMytheology cannot exist in the presence of any decent set theory.

Yes! WM's point of view is corrupt and self-contradictory, and thus of
no mathematical value whatsoever.
