WM has no mathematical foundation.
What goes on in WM's wild weird world of WMytheology is not mathematics.

But here it occurs in WMytheology, rather than in Denmark.

Nope!

OUTSIDE OF WM's wild weird world of WMytheology, any infinite sequence
all of whose values are equal has that value as its limit.

At least everywhere outside of WM's wild weird world of WMytheology.

It is clear that WM has still not figured out his error in defining
limits.
