Nowhere in the constructions of the real numbers do we make any assumptions that we are in some exotic set theory with supernatural powers. This is not XMen mathematics! The set T which I contructed in my original post satisfies all the axioms of ZF and therefore the contructions of the reals work fine therein. For those who naysay because of choice, it would be trivial to alter my definition to include that as well. Please stop picking on strawmen and admit the deep flaw in the Cantor Cabal.
