Yet all you do is prove a trivial theorem about a sequences of sets of
rationals and then invite people to "examine himself whether he is
willing to believe that nevertheless all rational numbers can be
enumerated"[1]. This implied conclusion is your main purpose. You should
have made that the theorem in post 533[1], but you couldn't. You can't
even write it out in what you once called "the correct way"[2], much
less derive it, in connected steps from the theorem you can write out.
You are doing mathematics by innuendo.
