One can talk about just one number as having certain properties without caring whether any others have those same properties, so the issue of whether there is more than one such number is then irrelevant. > > A real number has to have a binary expansion, and, if in the unit > interval, has to have a path in the Binary Tree.
And infinitely many of them have two paths in the binary tree.
However being aware of WHICH path or paths is irrelevant most of the time.
