Of course we cannot really do infinite things. This is only an

abbreviation.

I say that there is no finite line that changes the union. So the

union would be the same if there was no finite line. (This is a more

tedious expressing, but you seem to have run out of arguments.)

So the union would be the same if there was no finite line remaining.

Your, no, we cannot remove all lines, amounts to: There must remain

some finite line in order not to change the union. And this is false,

because the proof says that there is no finite line available for

remaining.

So either you wish to contradict a proof that you have accepted, or

you talk about an infinity line.
