You cannot. Every symbol you can choose belongs to a finite set. It is your big mistake to confuse potential infinity and completed infinity.

It has to be applied. But in order to shorten your phantasies, let us fix the constraints.
Everything that can be mentioned in the mathematical discourse in English (or any other language that is derived from English or can be translated into English) belongs to a countable set.
Therefore all elements of mathematics that can appear in this discourse belong to a countable set. Further all known set theory can be expressed in English or a formal language derived from English. This set theory "proves" that *in this discourse* there are uncountably many elements existing.
This is a contradiction. >

No. It is another way of proof. If we could go only always the same way, we would never obtain contradictions. But hear we have a contradiction - at least in the mathematical discourse that can be run in English. > Regards, WM
