as Stevin explained, it's just a simple ambiguity, that is "taken care of with an equals sign."
1.0000... means, "one dot endless placeholders for powers of tenth;" you have got to visualize every "last" one of them.

thus: he just never learned fractions; that simple, is that he cannot possibly "analyze the dimensionality of a problem," if he cannot ... cancel units in a simple fraction.
also, this equation looks as if it has a "function of m," although I don't recall, what he really thinks he means.
the speed of light is in (say) meters per second; the growth of the wavefront is in skware meters per skware seconds, but that is two very differnt kind of "skwares" ... really, the Pythagorean theorem has *nothing* to do with skwares!

thus: because you refuse to consider "atoms in free space," I had to stop rolling aorund on the floor to consider, Why the ****?
thus: the elements (and isotopes) cannot be understood without reference to the regular hedra; see the Moon model, http://21stcenturysciencetech.com

thus: the orbits of the electrons in the flyaway astronaut cannot go faster than the speed of light propogation (Snell's law of refraction, taken to extremus) "in the forward direction."
what is so difficult?... of course, the orbits are not in general aligned with or against the direction of travel ... oh, no  trigonometry!
