And about my statement above that all reals are listed ,I admit my argument was mistaken. My question is wheathr what cannot be numbered really exist or not.

That happens to also be true for the set on integers and doesn't have anything to do with your argument up to this point. > Sorry, my explanation was not good. And though it stands for in the meaning you said above, what I wanted to say ,is that we can only take up countable reals from among all reals. And we can only say about the rest of reals,that they exist,but cannot discribe them in any way.
