So all natural numbers are in the list
1, 2, 3
But not all natural numbers are in one single line?
Hence, they must be in more than one line. TND?
On the other hand, it is proven, that there are never more than one
line required to contain all that is contained in several lines.
Contradiction. This falsifies actual infinity.

And which parts of Tristram's life are not described in his diary?
