Your  conclusion is not correct. You can conclude that integers do
not  have  a  position,  but you cannot say that there is only one
1
.  Both possibilities are valid, i.e. it is possible that there
is only one "1", and it is possible that there are multiple "1"s.

Imagine  I give you a piece of paper; it is white and has the size
of  5  cm by 5 cm. Now you give it back to you, and I give back to
you  a  piece of paper that is white and has the size of 5 cm by 5
cm,  and I ask to you: "is this THE SAME piece of paper I gave you
earlier?".  Can you answer this question? If after that I give you
two  pieces of paper that are both white and have the size of 5 cm
by  5  cm and I ask you: "are these two THE SAME piece of paper?",
