It is true that no one of 1 or 2 or 3 is neccessary to make the sum of
them positive, so by WM's argument, none of them are necessary, and 0 is

But I do not claimed that any line is neccessary.
My claim is that any infinite set of lines is sufficient, and that no
finite set of lines is sufficient.
So if WM wishes to prove me wrong, he must disprove either
(1) that any infinite set of lines is sufficient
(2) that no finite set of lines is sufficient.
Neither of which he has done or can do.

I do not see anything by WM that qualifies as a proof of anythng
relevant to my claim that any infinite set of lines is sufficient, and
that no finite set of lines is sufficient.

There is no PARTICULAR set which is necessary, as one can come up with
two or more pairwise disjoint sets all of which are sufficient.
For example, take the residue classes modulo any prime and intersect
them with |N. Each of the resulting pair-wise disjoint sets of naturals
is sufficient, sowing that WM is totally wrong, again, as usual.
So that WM's continual references to some illusory necessary set or
necessary member just shows his total incompetence as a mathematician.
