Every matheologian does so, althogh most of them don't know. Well, then |N is finished. Then a proof for all n in |N shows something for all n in |N ad leaves no outcome. My proof shows that every n in |N can be mapped on a set s_n containing all rational numbers =< n which are not indexed by k =< n.

You believe in finished sets. This proof is about the finished set |N. Have you understood?
