I see. I figured it had to do with an irrational. I didn't think of doing it this way though.

comment Expressing a line as a linear combination of two points on the line.
That was my intuition as well. But it didn't really satisfy me as I wouldn't have thought "Oh that's obvious" just from the intuition. But it makes sense retrospectively I suppose.

comment Confusion concerning Cantor's theorem.
I'm aware of that, which is why I specified that the power set is a subset of the described set. I should have specified that I was considering the power set to be the set of equivalence classes on the larger set given the appropriate equivalence relation. But, the first reason you gave mostly clears it up for me. Thanks.
