Can you name, define, or at least "discern" one of the paths missing

in my Binary Tree? Note: I do not hide my receipe of construction any

longer. I use every tail that can be described and communicated in any

language.

If this is claimed in mathematics, then it is usual that the claimer

is able to give at least one example. (In matheology this is not so.)

Nevertheless, many matheologians claim that undefinable paths are

discernible. So every matheologian is invited to discern a further

path.

I agree to your conclusion but not to your premise.
