Not outside of WOLKENMUEKENHEIM,

because it is false outside of WOLKENMUEKENHEIM!

For m = 1, 1 = 1(1+1)/2 is true

BUT for m = 2, 1 + 1/2 = 3/2

BUT 2(2+1)/2 = 3

AND for m = 3, 1 + 1/2 + 1/3 = 6/6 + 3/6 + 2/6 = 11/6

BUT 3(3+1)/2 = 12/2 = 6

Again notice the huge the difference between what WM claims is true

inside Wolkenmuekenheim and what is true outside of Wolkenmuekenheim.

It seems that inside Wolkenmuekenheim even the simplest of arithmetic

differs from that of standatd matheatmcs.
