Once again, one sees the confusion over the

necessity of an object and the necessary count

of objects.

If the definiteness of the names requires an

infinite decimal expansion. And, if the combinatory

principle of "all" infinite decimal expansions

requires an infinite cardinality, then the infinite

number of expansions that duplicate a name are

unnecessary and can be removed. But, the system of

unique names still has a necessary infinite

multiplicity.

Please do not try to say that this is not of what

you speak. I do not care about your "willful" use

of crayons or your "goals" when using them.

A count of objects may be necessary even when

the existence of any given particular object

is not.
