Idiot: The other people finish completing their infinities. You either do or don't finish completing yours (you don't finish it at any finite time, that's for sure). But if (despite that) you somehow still DO finish it, then it IS different. At t= 1,2,3, etc., ALL OF THOSE ARE FINITE. But the COMPLETED antidiagonal, IF you can complete it, IS INFINITE. So the same logic does NOT apply. You finish the (different) antidiagonal at time t=w, if you want to get technical about it. Which is indeed "forever" after any of those FINITE times.
