PT III says: >Take a standard xaxis and yaxis in the Cartesian plane, and for sake of simplicity, name the points on these lines according to the fact they are each a real number line. Then: [etc. etc. etc.]
But I just explained that most reals (with probability 100%) have no names.  there's a problem here.
Even for some that have "names' I just couldn't "home in" on them.
It looked like a process, smelled liked a process, but there's just no carrying it out in general. I'm going to use "process' for procedures, maybe even infinitely long ones, that can actually be carried out.
