It happens that mitchrae3323@gmail.com formulated :
> Add the infinitely small to .9 repeating and you get 1.
> .9 repeating is a Transcendental One.
> They share a Sameness that is different only by
> the smallest first quantity or 1 divided by
> infinity or the infinitely small.

So, have you now given up on defending your position and resorted back
to just repeating it over and over again?

I agree with the subject line, but then you said that a decimal
expansion of one plus something small yet greater than zero is still
one. Can you explain this without just repeating, yet again, your
beliefs?
