WM was the first one to mention d, many posts ago, so he has long since

conceded the reality of actual infinity.

But as soon as there is any actual infinity, there is no longer any need

for any merely potential infinity.

There is no longer any need for potential infinity,

and there never was any such need, as far as actual mathematics is

concerned.

Except that no one ha shown that as yet, but all sorts of people have

shown that at least WM's version of potential infiniteness does not work.

And where is WM's proof that some mapping from the set of all binary

sequences to the set of all paths of a CIBT is a linear mapping?

WM several times claimed it but cannot seem to prove it.
