This is the starting point of Cantor's first proof and all its variants: Let a sequence be gicen. With this assumption the limit is given as a defined number. To waste all naturals for the enumeration of the terms of the sequence is a very simple trick. Not convincing. |N could even be wasted for half of the terms. Or, after one sequence has been enumerated, the existence of further sequences could be used as a "proof" of uncountable sets.
