Right there. That is you being a stupid idiot.

If you have a bijection between the digit strings and the
real numbers then, by definition of bijection, you do
not have a single real number represented by two distinct
digit strings.

That takes you past the dual-representation problem.

Certainly, but it does not allow for a trivial digit interleaving to form a
bijection between R and R^2, which is the step I asked to be shown and which
you snipped.

Challenge met above. The lack is yours.

I did in fact post a correct bijection based on digit interleaving elsewhere
in this thread. We have seen nothing from you. If you think that using the
mapping R -> P(N) to form a bijection between R and R^2 using digit
interleaving is trivial, show us how it is done. You will note that with the
digit interleaving bijection I provided earlier I provided a working
example, if you claim that a more trivial digit interleaving bijection
exists please show us how it works. Put up or shut up.
