In the COMPLETE INFINITE BINARY TREE, ther are no finite paths.

A FISON (finite initial sequence of nodes) in such a tree is never a

MISON (maximal initial sequence of nodes) and only a MISON can be a path

in a COMPLETE INFINITE BINARY TREE.

But what WM calls paths are not paths in Complete Infinite Binary Trees.

.

Is not ever a Complete Infinite Binary Tree.

What WM calls paths are not maximal, but in CIBT's they must be, by the

definition of CIBTs, maximal.

So that what WM chooses to call paths are not paths but merely FISONS.
