In any Complete Infinite Binary Tree, every one of the uncountably many
infinite paths must be there.

If any infinite path were "not there", it could only be because of some
finite initial segment of that infinite path not being there , i.e., the
only thing that can stop an infinite path from existing is the absence
from the set of nods of a finitely positioned node at the end of a
finite initial segment.

So if WM's tree contains all finitely positioned nodes, it must also
include all uncountably many infinite paths.

Actually, that argument would only prove that the set of definitions is
NOT countable.
