You try to Show a Contradiction in Set Theory, so you take True Statements and Mix them with False Statements. In Set Theory, there does Not Exist any Infinite Sets that are Not "Complete". There simply ARE Infinite Sets. We Understand that you do Not like this Concept, but it is No way in Contradiction with the Other Axioms. You are free to Use a System with No Infinite Sets.

Are we talking Rationals or Reals here? Anti-diagonal?
You seem Confused,
