Yes, and it is not intuitive nor needs it any formalization to
recognize that everything that happens in Cantor-lists happens withing
finite paths (or sequences of digits). It is absoluteley impossible
that something happens elsewhere! And if a list contains all possible
finite paths (which is possible as they are countable) then Cantor's
"proof" proves the uncountability of a countable set.

Note again: everything that happens in a Cantor-list happens withing
finite paths or finite initial segments of the anti-diagonal.

And please do me a favour and stop parroting of uncountable sets
unless you can explain how something can happen *after* all finite
initial segments.
