It is also a principle of many set theories, at lest tose ucorrupted by WM, that for every set there exists also a power set of all subset of that original set.

WM's flaws in making that claim work include, but are not necessarily limited to:
(1) not all members of |R will have any such binary expansions, only those between 0 and 1, so that not all sums of vectors will "add up" to be vectors within his alleged linear space, and
(2) some reals (the positive binary rationals strictly between 0 and 1) will have two distinct and unequal-as-vectors representations, requiring that some real numbers not be equal to themselves as a vectors, and
(3) WM's method does not provide for the negatives of any of the vectors that he can form.
On the basis of the above problems, and possibly others as well that I have not yet even thought of, I challenge WM's claim to have represented the set |R as the set of all binary sequences, much less to have imbued that set of all binary sequences with the structure of a real vector space or the showed the identity mapping to be a linear mapping on his set of "vectors". --
