Like Zuhair you are claiming infinite naturals!
A finite initial segment of N is not a path in the unary tree N.
And neither N as a unary tree nor any Complete Infinite Binary Tree has any finite paths.
"A Complete Infinite Binary Tree cannot be built with only finite paths, as none of its paths can be finite."
Means the same as
"A Complete Infinite Binary Tree cannot be built HAVING only finite paths, as none of its paths can be finite."
WM has this CRAZY notion that a path in a COMPLETE INFINITE BINARY TREE can refer to certain finite sets of nodes.
And no one is claiming any infinite naturals, only infinitely many finite naturals.
