You are applying universal generalizations you know do not apply.

It is clear to me you do not know how to argue by Reductio ad absurdum. I do this all the time.

It is clear to me you do not know how to argue by Reductio ad absurdum. I do this all the time. The properties of the Integers is that if n belongs to the integers then n + 1 belongs to the integers. This is Peano arithmetic.

That there is no greatest integer is true. It is called the Archimedean property of numbers. It does not use this "proof". You are absolutely categorically wrong in your proof. It is a common mistake that many people make and is completely compatible with many of your arguments. You may get away with wordplay and ambiguityy with verbal atguments in relativity but you cannot get away with it in mathematics. Matheinste.

Prove it is wrong.

I have learnt from experience that if you have decided you are correct, no amount of logical argument will convince you otherwise. However in this case there is no doubt, your proff is invalid. Matheinste

I cannot show you Reductio ad absurdum.
