So that as soon as any list exists, a non-member of that list is proved to exist, so the very existence of a list proves its incompleteness.

The issue is whether a list can be complete in the sense of containing every possible sequence.
You concede that the very existence of a list demonstrates the existence of a diagonal not listed in it.
Thus one must conclude that no such list can list everything. > > With same right he could have argued that there are more even than odd > non-negative integers, because 0 is even and after every odd integer > there follwos an even one, just overlooking that after every even > integer there follows an odd one.
On CAN conclude that there are at least as many evens as odds from your argument, but not that there are more of them.
To conclude that there are more of one type than another one would have to show not only that the supposedly smaller set injects into the supposedly larger but the supposedly larger set does NOT inject into the supposedly smaller.
At least in the sort of proper mathematics that goes on outside of WMytheology. What goes on inside of WMytheology is entirely up to WM.
WM has frequently claimed that HIS mapping from the set of all infinite binary sequences to the set of paths of a CIBT is a linear mapping.
In order to show that such a mapping is a linear mapping, WM would first have to show that the set of all binary sequences is a linear space (which he has not done and apparently cannot do) and that the set of paths of a CIBT is also a vector space (which he also has not done and apparently cannot do) and then show that his mapping, say f, satisfies the linearity requirement that f(ax + by) = af(x) + bf(y), where a and b are arbitrary members of the field of scalars and x and y and f(x) and f(y) are arbitrary members of suitable linear spaces.
While this is possible, and fairly trivial for a competent mathematician to do, WM has not yet been able to do it.
