Or look up the definition of infinite sum in a first year Calculus book. It has nothing to do with your imbecilic twaddle about adding up an infinite number of integers.)

Would should have tipped you off to the fact that you were talking nonsense.
Have you found out what an infinite sum actually is

You think that a sequence of nonzero terms cannot have a limit of 0?!?
(Hint: the limit of a sequence need not be an element of the sequence.
If the sequence is strictly increasing or strictly decreasing it cannot be).
