In matheology solid arguments are of little value.

But that is impossible unless one of countably many finite specifications is used. > > In reality it is relevant, since any (complete) path in a Complete > Infinite Binary Tree contains infinitely many nodes and infinitely many > branchings, and cannot be distinguished from all other (complete) paths > without specifying at least infinitely many of its nodes or its entire > sequence of branchings
which is impossible unless the God of matheology will help or a finite definition of countably many is applied. > > Note that while a finite number of nodes can separate one path from any > finite set of other paths and from some infinite sets of other paths, it > takes infinitely many nodes to separate it from EVERY other path,
alas that number is not available, unless ...
