That is not necessary for pople who can think without crutches.

Cantor has been disproved. Try to understand the Binary Tree. Then you
will understand that not more than countably many paths can be
distinguished.

Here is a summary of the argument concerning the Binary Tree:

1) The set of all real numbers of the unit interval is (said to be)
uncountable.
2) An uncountable set has (infinitely many) more elements than a
countable set.
3) Every real number has at least one unique representation as an
infinite binary string (some rationals have even two representations
but that's peanuts).
4) In many cases the string cannot be defined by a finite word.
5) Without loss of information the first bits of two strings, if
equal, need not be written twice.
6) Application of this rule leads to the Binary Tree.
7) The binary strings of the unit interval are isomorphic to the paths
of the Binary Tree.
8) It is not possible to distinguish more than countably many paths by
their nodes.
9) This is proven by constructing the Binary Tree node by node.
10) Further this is proven by colouring all edges and nodes and paths
of the complete Binary Tree by countably many paths.

Try to contradict at least one of the 10 treecommandments.
