But no one is talking about whether the sequence
of rationals converging to a rational is in the
set of rationals.

The issue is a representation of apparent geometric
completeness within an arithmetical system.

The issue is the logical form of such a construction.

That you believe your crayon marks justify a material
belief in some abstract, non-material objects but deny
a material belief in other abstract, non-material
objects verges on sheer lunacy.

Crayon marks have nothing to do with it.

Belief has nothing to do with it.

And, your ability to call certain crayon marks "names"
has nothing to do with it either. You failed your
science lesson on those days too.
