That they are instantiated must be proven, and that you have not done.
You have not proven that there is a CIBT constructed or constructible so as NOT to contain uncountably many paths, whereas many have proven that any CIBT must have more than any countable set of paths in order to be a COMPLETE INFINITE BINARY TREE.
Given any countable set of such paths, any proof that they are countable requires that they be listable, but one can prove that they are not listable by showing that no list of them can be complete. And no mater how vociferously WM tries to argue otherwise, in standard mathematics that can all be done.
