No. It is not assuming this but *proving* this. Because paths cannot be distinguished without nodes.
Equivalently: Assuming that that, in Cantor's proof, every line contains a digit that differs from the corresponding digit of the anti diagonal would be assuming that the anti diagonal is not in the list. > > - You are trying to prove that there are countably many > paths through the root node. > > - This is equivalent to proving that there are countably many > paths through "that node"
This is equivalent to proving that there are only countably many possibilities of distinguishing paths below "that node".
