It has the (improper) limit oo, because the reciporcals have the limit
0.

It is a sequence of sets of indexed digits. It is only written with a
point between some arbitrarily selected elements in order to veil the
problem.

In order to show that set theoretical limits are invalid. They depend
on arbitrary assumptions and interpretations. Mathematics must yield
results that are independent of interpretations.

That depends on the interpretation of competent. To the best of my
knowledge no competent mathematician accepts ZFC.
