Once again, I've no idea what point you're trying to make here.
Let's start simply. Take the above list and the previously stated
definition of d. Do you agree or deny that d = 0.777... per that
Second, can you please state what precise claim you're trying to make
when you write "As long as the line has a finite enumeration, also the
column has?" I haven't a clue.
It would be swell if you could write it in more or less set-theoretic
terms, since, after all, you are allegedly providing a proof in ZF.
"Do you know some logic? Please apply it.
If all a in A also are b in B, then it is not excluded that also a c
in C that is not in A nevertheless is a b in B."
