No, it is a matter of convention. In mathematics
a, b, c, ..., z
means a, b, c, continue this way until you reach z. But starting
{1}, {1, 2}, {1, 2, 3}
and going on you never reach
{1, 2, 3, ...}

No. Suppose we have the paths 0.000 and 0.100, what is their union? And
is it a path?

Yes, but not with a step by step method that will ever be complete.

Which mapping?
