Your logic is incorrect.

> Well, first of all there is an inconsistency in the finite number of subsets and making t a continious variable, so it then has an infinite number of values.

His statement "1. The subsets must be finite" refers to the actual number of subsets, not the number of valid subsets.

> Also you seem to assume that t is time without really saying so, in the very next paragraph to where you assumed t was variable. I suppose that is no different than saying that all sensations can be ennumerated. You are really assuming that all the numbers in the finite number of subsets are functions of this parameter t.

Again, it is the actual sensations that can be enumerated, not all possible "valid" sensations. Although "t" is continous, the validity of the parameter passed to the function is dependent on the subsets themselves. In other words, each subset selector is a value of type "t", but this does not imply that each continous value refers to a valid subset.
