Try to think like a human being called sapiens sapiens should do:
Can a line that is not the last line, i.e., that has a follower, can
such a line be required in any respect?
If there is no last line, then no line is required. This is a fact,
easy to prove. Therefore this is not nonsense. The consequence is that
the complete set |N is nonsense.

You said infinitely many lines were required to contain |N. But since
at most one of them is the last line, infinitely many of the lines
claimed by you are *not* required.
