Cantor's Diagonal Argument in a Nutshell

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.
