Why do you distract the attention of the reader?

Of course I see a contradiction.

This contradiction has its origin in the assumption that a potentially

infinite sequence is something that could be complete enough to be in

a line or elsewhere.

Everybody can see it clearly here:

1

1, 2

1, 2, 3

...

This list has everything that is in the diagonal in a line too. But

nowhere we have a completed diagonal, not in a line and not in the

diagonal.
