Modern mathematics. Not old common sense and logic

That's where I make a distinction and where my query about
0.999999r being infinitely close to 1 came from - a logical point
of view, not arguing mathematical proofs. If mathemeticians
in a mathematical world choose to represent 0.99999r as 1 then
I have no problem with that and respect your opinion Andrew

In the physical world "a miss is as good as a mile"
