But changing finite lines may well change unions of sets of finite lines.

The distinction is on whether the set of lines in question has a maximal

member when ordered by inclusion.

If it does then the removal of the maximal member changes the union, so

that WM's claim is not true in general, but can only be true for the

special case in which the set of sets does not have a maximal member by

inclusion.

And or a set sets of of naturals like WM's sets of lines not to have a

maximal member requires that for every line in it there is a longer line

in it which is a superset of that previous line.

Thus it follows that theses things that WM claims for sets of lines can

only hold when such sets have n maximum by inclusion member.

Outside of Wolkenmuekenheim, such sets of sets are called infinite.

Inside Wolkenmuekenheim, they cannot get visas to enter.

WM's poofs convince no one.

it is WM who refrains from two-valued logic.

It is only in places like Wolkenmuekenheim that tertuim non datur is

rejected and more than two logical values are allowed.

In the standard logic that WM rejects, TERTIUM NON DATUR still holds!

In Wolkenmuekenheim, there seem to be an unlimited list of logical

values, practically a spectrum of them.
