For example, I am following the below proof:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Although the above derivation involves a projection on the position basis, it appears one can generalize this result by using any complete basis. So despite it not being explicitly mentioned here, are all wave functions with any continuum basis non-normalizable?
