Why should there be any one line necessary to the union of all of them
when every line is only a subset of another line?

And since ANY infinite set of lines is sufficient, and some infinite set
of lines is necessary, WM asks for what he knows need not exist.

I have no reason to merely admit what I have vigorously insisted upon,
despite WM's denials.

A great deal of non-WM mathematics is nonsense to those, like WM, who
are incapable of comprehending it.

I did not say "AN infinite set, I said ANY infinite set, which clearly
(at least to those not mired in WMytheology) means that no particular
line is required.

So that WM is asking for something he should know (if he were at all
competent as a mathematician) does not exist.
