Every list yields another diagonal.
And every diagonal can be included in another list.
Both these facts are the two sides of infinity. Cantor did that false
step to choose one as more justified than the other.
With same right he could have argued that there are more even than odd
non-negative integers, because 0 is even and after every odd integer
there follwos an even one, just overlooking that after every even
integer there follows an odd one.
