On the contrary, the union of all such FISs is larger than EVERY FIS, since it cleary contains each FIS as a proper subset.

Which is a fixed cardinality, and as such is often considered to be number. > > Have you constructed in your head the Binary Tree that only contains > all finite paths?
NO complete binary tree contains ALL finite paths as a COMPLETE binary tree is by definition restricted to paths of a single length: Length Paths Nodes ------ ----- ----- 1 1 1 2 2 3 3 4 7 4 8 15 . . . . . . . . . n 2^(n-1) 2^n-1

There is only one (up to isormorphism) Complete Infinite Binary Tree. --
