PROOF DIGIT 1 (2) IS DIFFERENT TO LIST[1,1] (0) DIGIT 2 (1) IS DIFFERENT TO LIST[2,2] (3) DIGIT 3 (2) IS DIFFERENT TO LIST[3,3] (1) AND SO ON So AD is DIFFERENT to EVERY ROW
since This Holds For Any Arbitrary List Of Reals there is a missing Real for any List Of Reals therefore Reals are UnCountable!
