Numbers are finite by nature, if you working with some nonefinite concept of noneterminating string you are not working with a number, not for Pi not for 1/0 not for 0.333.. not for 0999... not for inf. These are not mathematical entities, they are concept dreamed up by the human mind, 0.333... and 0.999 was dreamed up because partition of bases is inadequate way to describe fractional parts. 0 was dreamed up by imagine that the empty bucket also was a mathematical statement. Infinity was dreamed up as the justification as a justification of the previous concepts.
