With all due respect, you are an incorrigible fart who is committing himself

to denying the meaningfulness of lim_{n->oo} n = oo.

Unless I have misunderstood your remark: should that be where the heck,

eventually, the infinitely many balls (indices) have gone in that {oo}, then

note that, formally, succ(oo) := oo (in the most basic extension), hence we

have non-finite (i.e. limit) indices all along, not distinguishable one

another (within the calculus!), so amounting to a singleton set.

Incidentally, I insist, as a critical point, that we should be using N*, not

N, for any "infinite endeavours": asking what happens to the vase in the

limit is intrinsically a super-task and then, maybe, I start understanding

why set theory (any set theory) compels actual infinities.
