In ZF, and most other set theories in which the set of all naturals is

allowed, the uncountability of the set of all subsets of the set of

naturals is provable.

Quite so, at least outside WMytheology.

But nothing guarantees that one can always find such a decimal or binary

representation.

That some reals are inaccessible is well known.

Without loss of information the FISs of uncountably many binary strings,

if equal, need not be written twice.

Since WM's misunderstandings of of a Complete Infinite Binary Tree are

pervasive and apparently incorrectable, from here on WM's stuff is even

more junky than usual.
