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.

The infinitely small difference for them needs to defined .9 repeating to 1
