Cantor's Diagonal Argument in a Nutshell CDA allows every member of a list of infinite binary sequences to be counted except the last one. The last member doesn't exist. The list can be counted.

That's not CDA. Any list can be counted, but certain sets are such that any listable subset is a proper subset. There are already threads on CDA that are open, so there's no need for new threads. Last edited by skipjack; February 7th, 2019 at 05:24 PM.

This has been discussed ad nauseum. Please refrain from starting threads of this nature. Thread closed.
