The present position.

A is a potentially infinite list of finite objects
call the nth element of A, a_n
b is a finite object.

WM has agreed to

(i) b is an element of A
(ii) for every n in |N, b is not equal to a_n

WM claims that (ii) does not contradict (i)
as a direct proof of the contradiction
would use (ii) and infinite number of times.

WM refuses to look at the indirect proof
that (ii) contradicts 1.
