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.
