It is not my formula at all, but Cantor's

For the given f, ask yourself:
Is 1 in f(1)?
Is 2 in f(2)?
Is 3 in f(3)?
Is 4 in f(4)?
Is n in f(n) for n > 4?
And then work out which will be in { n in |N : ~ n in f(n) }.

And if you can't, why should anyone want to spoil such perfect
ignorance?

Why should anyone want to spoil your perfect ignorance?
