But irrational numbers in fact are not available as sequences of
digits.

0.1234567891011121314151617181920... is an irrational expressed as a
series of digits.

And so is .10100100010000100000...

The sequence of digits does not tell which irrational it is.

Actually, if there are infinitely many of its digits known, or at least
knowable, which there are in this case, that tells us exactly which real
it is.
