Every path in a Complete Infinite Binary Tree can be represented as a

binary sequence of successive left child versus right child branchings

and every such sequence determines a unique path.

And Cantor showed that no sequnce of such infinite binary sequences

cannot be complete, thus cannot be countable.

And no matter how WM squirms, he cannot make it otherwise.
