If the set needs to contain an infinite number of lines, then this is

a set that has to have a first element.

> of lines does not contain a line.

It cannot contain a necessary line, since, as you said, there is no

necessary line.

But you think that it necessarily must contain a not necessary line.

If so, then at least one line is necessary. If so then the set of non-

necessary lines which are necessary contains a first line.

Name it!

Even afterwards we do not know its identity, because of every chosed

set of lines we can prove that the lines are completely superfluous

for the contents of the list.

A needed number of lines has a first element.

If lines were chosen, that are superfluous, they cannot belong to the

needed number.

Name the frist line. Or confess that not every set of natural numbers

is a set if natural numbers that obeys the rules established in set

theory for sets of natural numbers.

Ah, a needed line is not a necessary line?

In order to avoid interpretations of need an necessity, simply adhere

to this definition: A line is HIGH, if it cannot be removed without

changing the contents of the list, i.e., |N.

Theorem, valid in actual infinity: No line is necnee. There is no set

of necnee lines.
