I have yet to see any "clear mathematical formulas" which can explicitly display a sequence that has no beginning. > > An analytical expression of infinity is this > Limit[n-->oo] SUM[k=0 to n] a_k*10^k = oo
Not as it stands! You would have to first establish that at least infinitely many of those a_k's are to be strictly positive.

If the limit of your sequence were a real number then it would NOT have any such representation, and only real numbers do have such any basal representations > > So it is incorrect to say that communication has come to a halt but it > is correct to say that you have no further arguments to defend your > position but do not want to admit that for reasons that I don't know.
Those reasons have been quite clearly and repeatedly represented.
That WM remains ignorant of them, or at least clams to, is only by his own choice, rather than by any necessity. --
