If such expansions exist, that may be possible. But first the digit
expansion must be produced in Cantor's list. And that is not possible
for self-contradictory expansions.

Cantor's argument uses only digits.

It is not a matter of writing them down. That would be impossible
already for a sequence of 10^1000 digits. It is a matter of proving
mathematically the non-existence.

Didn't you understand yet the argument? Every power of 10 with natural
exponent n can be reflected: 10^n reflected gives 10^-n.

For the infinite sequence 0.111... this is not possible. Therefore it
does not exist as sequence of only natural powers of 10. (But
supernatural powers are not element of mathematics.)
