THE MAIN ANTI-DIAGONAL you say??

D = 0. 094087347637512...
A = 0. 555555555555655...

OK, see how I go...

To make it easy to see

0. 5 ..
0. 15 ..
0. 245 ..
0. 0495 ..
0. 93875 ..
0. 738475 ..
0. 0483495 ..
0. 82838475 ..
0. 357584845 ..
0. 1938473935 ..
0. 28487574725 ..
0. 486685833835 ..
0. 3010919283856 ..
0. 67474838327495 ..
0. 538383748740155 ..
..

So there aren't really

BIGGER THAN INFINITY

many rows of Real numbers!!

Changing the Diagonal 1 digit at a time
just changes the ordering of any big enough list!

Do you claim the DIAGONAL is missing too?
