Interesting. A nice claim.
The limit of a sequence may depend on the method which is used to
calculate it? Perhaps it may even depend on the person who calculates
it?

Piffle. Mathematics serves as a tool to predict scientific results.
Therefore its results must be independent of the method and of the
person.
If the value of the continued fraction
((((((10^0)/10)+10^1)/10)+10^2)/10)+?
is infinite, then set theory cannot yield a result < 1 (because for no
digit left to the decimal point there remains an index - but digits of
decimal representations cannot exist without indexes). If both results
were tolerated, then mathematics would lose its state of being a
useful tool for scientific applications.

Therefore the result of set theory is humbug.

Regards, WM
