The proof shows that one can remove all finite lines of the set. If

you believe that the set of all finite lines is something else, I will

not object. But if we remove all finite lines of the set, then no

finite line remains.

This holds because induction holds for all finite lines, which in

ordinary logic of set theory is the same as every finite line

including all its predecessors.

So this has been proved in case the actual infinite set |N is existing

and containing more than every finite line of the list.
