No axiom, but some is less than all.

And that there is an m such that 2/3 of all natural numbers have been attached, and so on. In fact that would make sense and we could trust in countability - as your naive idea shows. But that is not possible. Quite the reverse! Enumerate the rationals as far as you like. Let n be the largest natural number that ever a human being will think about. Then with 1, 2, ..., n you will have enumerated less than

Read what I wrote, dummy.

For any particular rational, you must be able to find a step where 1/2 all the rationals less
than that particular rational, not 1/2 of all rationals, must be placed in its final place.

Now change "rational" to "natural".

You should ( but probably lake the intellect to ) be able to see the difference.

And, BTW, the largest natural anyone can think of is irrelevant.

You are a fool.

The cases are not analogous.

For all n e N, { m e N | m < n } is finite.

For all q e Q, { p e Q | p < q } is infinite.

Its about ordinality not cardinality.

Please stop talking about things you don't or won't understand.
