They are assumed to have infinitely many bits. But an infinite
sequence of bits is not converging (the factors 2^-n are missing).
Most of them cannot be written by finite expressions. And they cannot
be written as infinite expressions.

Most of them are undefined and undefinable. But in order to remedy
that problem we use rationals in binary representation. Cantor's
argument, if valid, has to stand that example.

But it does not.
