In fact we can say that in a suitable list "every" initial segment of

s is contained in some line, since there is no s(n) = (s1, s2, ...,

sn) missing. But there is no sensible way of saying "all" initial

segment. (There is no last line in the Binary Tree.)

The same holds for lists of natural numbers and rational numbers.

Therefore there is no difference concerning "countability".

Thank you for this discussion it has also helped me to clear thoughts.
