In 1964, G. ’t Hooft postulated three axioms, and proved that every nonempty finite model of them has elements. This note confirms this by showing that every nonempty model can be made into a vector space over the field with four elements. For every pair of different elements and , the quartet of and is the affine line through and in this vector space.
