Of course I have. I construct one infinite path through each node. That means there are uncountably many paths and every combination of nodes residing on levels L_n with finite index n is constructed. > > > such that every node and every possible combination of nodes is > > covered by at least one path (in fact by infinitely many). > > Yes, infinitely many paths. Uncountably infinite many paths.
That is wrong. I need only countably many paths.

Here is a means that everybody with a minimum of intelligence can understand.
I construct a finite path to every node and then append that path by an infinite tail, for instance, 010101...
But I don't tell you what tail I used, because this tail is completely meaningless. It will only prevent that you can argue the path of 1/3 or the path of 1/7 is not in the tree.
