Is that your only escape? Call it however you like. Every initial
segment is a fraction - and this is continued without end.

Imagine I put it as a homework. What is the limit? Do I have to accept
oo as well as <1 or even something in between, depending on what
mathematical tools are applied? By this trick every answer to every
homework has to be accepted. Well, I know, it has been so for nearly
one hundred years already. If the answer to 3 + 5 was 9, then the
pupil could refer to Banach-Tarski:
"Didn' t you mean marbles? Look, I have applied Banach-Tarski to one
of them and so have doubled it." You think, I should grade that very
good?

Regards, WM
