That is being countably infinite, but countable includes being countably
finite, certainly a set like {1,2,3} is countable, so all that is
required is a surjection from |N to X

X is COUNTABLY INFINITE if and only if there is a bijection of X with N.

X is COUNTABLE if and only if there is a surjection from N to X.
