The reason is simple, but the answers amounts to talking smut in matheology:  Every list that is given by the usual first three lines does not define more than three digits of the antidiagonal  Every list that is given by n lines lines does not define more than n digits of the antidiagonal.  Every infinite list is given by a finite definition, but there are only countably many finite definitios and countably many replacement rules. Therefore there are only countably many antidiagonals in mathematics.
But that is a heretic thought in mathemaology. Matheologians prefer to believe in nonsense, because the infinite is like a drug. They cannot understand you. They are hypnotized. With the same result you could try to call deaf people. But they are not dangerous. And mathemaology is less distributed than astrology or scientology.
