If it is actually a path in a CIBT, meaning that it has an actual
inifinity of nodes, then it contains not only every but also all finite
initial segments of the binary form of 1/3

If one gives a general form for those terms, one defines ALL of them

In binary, 1/3 is 0.(01), where (01) indicates the infinite string of 01
repeating forever.

And every of actually infinitely many proper fractions has has some
finitely expressible binary expression.
