Ah. So he is pointing out that computers must represent numbers using
finite representations. Therefore all numbers that computers use are
countable.

Technically that's a true statement.

Indeed, but he seems to see this as a problem (and presumably thinks
that he has a solution to the "problem").

I wonder, if he really wants to magically expand to truly using real
numbers, whether that would also include non-computable numbers.
