By what rule of limiting do you claim such a limit?

Note that none of the terms, at least as indicated above, are in proper
form for real numbers, so that their meanings are, at best, uncertain,
so that no interpretation as real numbers is necessarily valid.

Since your claimed limit, oo, does not have any digits, on either side
of its non-existent decimal point, your claimed implication is seen to
be trivially false.

Thus any further claims, at least those being based on that falsehood,
are themselves unreliable.
