Then why do you say above that "the Binary Tree that contains nothing
but all finite paths."?

AS soon as you tell us what paths you have included in your tree, we
will be able to tell you at least some of the ones that you have left
out. But until you show us your paths we have no way of knowing which
ones are yours and which ones are not yours.

It already has been considered by rational and sober thinkers and
accepted by them and it is only drunk 'tinkers' like yourself who object.

Even as a drunk 'tinker' WM is no good.

No matter how he tinkers with things they do not work.
