You are even more confused than Jan Burse, Zelos Madman and "Me".
If point 999 repeating goes on forever it's transcendental. It shares a sameness to one by the infinitely small difference between the two quantities. They are absolute next quantities to each other; only nothing or 0 in between them.

It is illformed concept and Euler's Blunder.
The infinitely small difference for them needs to defined .9 repeating to 1
