No you don't. In particular, you do not produce any path which contains
both infinitely many left branchings and infinitely many right
branchings, but there are most common kind in any ACTUAL complete
infinite binary tree.

That is still true for demonstrably incomplete sets of paths, as well as
many sets of finite sub-paths, so is totally irrelevant to the issue.

WRONG! Numerals can be defined by digits but numbers can be defined in a
number of ways which do not require digits at all.

For example, the number pi is standardly defined with no reference to
digits at all. And so is the number e.

There seems to be no basis for anyone with a reasonable knowledge of
mathematics for to have a discussion of mathematics with someone like WM
who ignores so much mathematics in order to support his delusions about
mathematics.

But in asddition, you claim that these are all of the numbers there are,
even though such numbers as e and pi have no known sequence of digits
which unambiguously identify them, so cannot be a part of WM's odd
version of mathematics.

In my tree, each path represents a real number between 1 and 2 by
inserting a binary radix point after the root node and representing each
node of form 2*n + i, i in {0,1}, by its i value.

Then, for example, pi/2 corresponds to a path in my tree but not in
yours.
