A sequence of numbers may converge, but not necessarily to a limit

that is a term of the sequence.

A sequence of paths may converge, but not necessarily to a limit that

is a term of the sequence.

If you believe in a difference between numbers and paths, you should

be able to substantiate that belief. But you cannot reason with

mathematical arguments. Again you have to believe in matheology as the

"reason" of this difference.

In mathematics more precision is required.

This is again a simple statement of countermathematical belief and as

such without value in mathematics.
