I already SHOWED you that path by diagonalizing each countable set of
infinite paths of the complete infinite binary tree, but you REFUSE to
see it as usual. This is a trivial corollary of Cantor's argument. It
is YOUR misinterpretation of Cantors, and your obvious inability to
deal with such level of thought that make you derive silly and
ridiculous statements all of which are frankly erroneous.

You see to like the concept of definable reals although frankly
speaking you yourself do not know exactly that is and how to deal with
it. Anyhow
