If the infinite sequence of Universal Turing Machines (emulated from 1
starting UTM)

can permute the calculations equivalent to
<TM1, TM2, TM3, TM4,...>

in all possible computable permutations of N

1X2X3X4X5X6...

then the amount of binary sequences, only

2X2X2X2X2X2...

should fit inside that list easily!
