If the only admissible "lines" are the

"finite lines" then there would certainly

be a change in the union over admissible

lines.

As for the prior statement:

WM has *proven* nothing.

WM would be incapable of applying logic to

a premise he did not believe.

WM has been asked to explain what

he means by "actual infinity" since

his foundational philosophy is allegedly

grounded in some notion of physicalism.

The question of "what is actual?" may be

given context in the links:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Idealism#Idealism_in_the_philosophy_of_science

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Philosophy_of_science#Scientific_realism_and_instrumentalism

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Scientific_realism#Arguments_for_and_against_scientific_realism

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Instrumentalism#Critiques_and_responses

Obviously, WM has no intention of explaining

his "philosophy of mathematics" beyond his

"proof by reality" nonsense.
