There is no reason to pay any attention to WM's claims here either, as
they all assume situations contrary to fact, at least in standard

Though WM does claim that in they hold in some evanescent neighborhood
of his person called Wolkenmuekenheim, though not by WM. .

Since WM snipped the sense out of my line, I feel justified in returing
the favor.

Lets see WM's statement of the inductive principle.

One acceptable form is:

There exists a set of objects, N, and a zero object such that
1. Zero is one of the objects in N.
2. Every object in N has a successor object in N.
3. Zero is not the successor object of any object in N.
4. If the successors of two objects in N are the same,
then the two original objects are the same.
5. If a set contains Zero and the successor object of every
object in N, then that set contains N as a subset.

And any form which cannot be shown to be equivalent to the above form is
unacceptable as an inductive principle.

And the forms which WM has been hawking cannot be shown to be
equivalent, so are unacceptable.
