That's the set of paths? You just come right out and say that they are
all finite? Surely not. I think you are playing games again.

Please define the set of paths. The set that you claim is countable.

Go on, you know you want to. It will all be over just as soon as you
define it to be some countable subset of the paths in the tree everyone
else it talking about. I, at least, can then shut up.
