WM failed the science lesson again today.
The Cantor argument is an argument scheme.
It presupposes a standard, classical use of of the quantifier "all".
WM has never defined his nonstandard uses for the word "all". It has no agreed upon usage. It is meaningless by WM's own standards of meaning through pragmatic agreements between language users.
By definition, all paths in the complete infinite binary tree are infinite whether or not they become eventually constant.
Any purported countable listing of all the paths of that tree will result in a successful defeat of the claim by a Cantor argument.
