NO! That 'sequence' is only defined in WM's wild weird world of
WMytheology, so has no limit anywhere else.

And outside of WM's wild weird world of WMytheology, a sequence of all
zeroes would always have limit zero, because:

Outside the wild weird world of WMytheology, every neighborhood of the
limit of a real sequence must contain all but finitely many members of
that sequence.

A mathematician would have known that, but WM clearly does not, so is
clearly not a mathematician.
