Then any line parallel to the vector thru a chosen point is normal to the plane, and not normal to any plane not parallel to the given plane. --------------------- As an alternative, choose a point on a line in 3-space. Find 2 lines not 180º apart perpendicular to the 1st line. Those 2 lines define a plane.
