Only in your little crank world, where pigs can
fly, sqrt(2) does not exist, and white is black,

Generally it is allow to overload arity, so we
have no probem with using (-) unary and (-) binary:

- (-1) = 1 /* unary use of (-) */
2 - 3 = -1 /* binary use of (-) */

Now the same of S, if the same arity is involved
it should denote 100% exactly the same, so you
cannot do the following is not simultaneous possible:

S = 0.3+0.03+...+ 3/10^n + ... /* S arity 0 */

S = 0.3+0.03+...+ 3/10^n /* S arity 0 */

But what is possible (sometimes, not always, for
example in lambda calculus there is no arity):

S = 0.3+0.03+...+ 3/10^n + ... /* S arity 0 */

S(n) = 0.3+0.03+...+ 3/10^n /* S arity 1 */

So you then have:

S = lim n->oo S(n)

So maybe see a doctor bird brain John Gabriel, it
seems youre brain is going down the rabit hole,

Here have a song that matches your brain:
