This. Decimal representations aren't what numbers actually are. For actually defining numbers, you will need things like set theory or lambda calculus and then you can start converting between the definition and the representation. And if you do that, you will come to the conclusion that 0.999... = 1.

He was trying to get you to realize that you don't need to add up all the numbers. Maths is about finding patterns to be able to deduce results more easily. That's why we invented formulae.

First of all, he should really prove that the representation is unique now, but I guess he's correct. Anyways if we accept this notion, 0.999... doesn't exist anymore so there's no problem at all.
