Unless we are give some assurance that the pattern that most of us see is the intended one, such as by formula, no one can state "THE" limit, as no such limit exists.

WM claims to be able to analyze a single sequence and, depending on which of two methods he uses, derive two quite different limits.
But of course, he is, as usual, working exclusively in Wolkenmuekenheim, to which no one sane has access. --
