That's a bijection between the set of *finite* sets of the form {1, 2, 3,
..., n} and the set of natural numbers. Whilst it 'continues into the
infinite', at no point does it map an infinite set to an infinite natural.
All the Set-of-N things in your table are finite sets. All Natural numbers
are finite.
