comment How to prove that every infinite cardinal is equal to $\omega_\alpha$ for some $\alpha$?
@AsafKaragila I should've read the editing history! Thanks for the comment, Asaf.

@JimConant Thanks Jim, that's right, it's a totally ordered set. Maybe you could suggest a better notation -- how are ordered lists usually denoted?

comment Difference between complete and closed set
@JonasMeyer Thank you! My confusion arose from the fact that I considered $\sqrt{2}$ a limit point of $\mathbb{Q}$ in $\mathbb{Q}$ I think. And as anon stated concisely. "A limit point of X in Y has to actually exist in Y.".

comment Difference between complete and closed set
@JonasMeyer So when Wikipedia writes "a set is closed if and only if it contains all of its limit points", then this is under the assumption that the space is a complete metric space? I'm asking because then the Wikipedia entry would be wrong.
