How is this any different from |N being the the "limit' (or union) of
all its finite initial segments but then having properties that none of
its finite initial segments have, like infinitely many elements.?

In fact, no finite initial segment can contains any "Path" at all.

WRONG!

There can be uncountably many infinite binary sequences representing
different real numbers in the unit interval, [0,1], even allowing for
the countably many duplicate representations of binary rationals in that
interval, and an easy bijection between them and the infinite paths in
an infinite binary tree.
