1/9 names a number, and that number is just a number and not either a finite nor an infinite sequence, though some of its other names are.
The finite sequences "0.1" "0.11" "0.111" and others may be removed from the infinite sequence abbreviated by "0.111..."

ANY FISON and all its predecessors can be removed from the union |N of all FISONs without changing this union.
But removing every FISON leaves none to form a union.

We all understand that it is wrong to say, ss WM is doing here, that one can remove everything and still have something left, at least wrong everywhere except in Wolkenmuekenheim. > > Regards, WM --
