You seem to have not yet understood. But I enjoy to explain it again,
and again, and again, ... because the story is incredible.

Every set of the sequence

1,
1, 2
1, 2, 3
...

is the union of all its predecessors and its last {n}.

There are infinitely many sets, so there are infinitely many unions.

None of these infinitely many unions yields |N, although every union
adds something.

After you pause, exhausted, since you failed to get |N but got only
sets which a lacking aleph_0 natural numbers, you pray and do a last
union. This last union cannot supply anything new, because the union
of a set with its subsets cannot yield a larger set. (And we know,
none of the sets is |N. All sets are subsets of one set. Each of the
sets is infinitely far away from being |N.) But your prayer has been
accepted. The last union, you would not believe it, yields |N.

I love this story!

Regards, WM
