Admit it, if you think "0.999...=1" then you also think" 0.555...=1"

If you don't openly admit to thinking that, then you're either a dishonest lying faggot OR just a retard who fails to notice his own retardation.

 >> Anonymous Mon Jul 6 16:46:20 2020 No.11874517 >>11874495ok, that makes sense but what i don't understand is that 0.999... is less than 1, and we can see that because 0.999.. is a decimal where the whole part is 0 and the fractional part less than 1, so if 0.999.. is less than one, then how can they be equal?
 >> Anonymous Mon Jul 6 16:51:21 2020 No.11874535 >>11874517It isn't less than one, in the same way that 1/2 + 1/4 + 1/8 + 1/16 ... = 1, the distance between 1 and 0.9, 0.99, 0.999 and so on keeps shrinking and once you have an infinite number of 9's the distance can only be 0, it's just a very confusing way of representing the number 1.
 >> Anonymous Mon Jul 6 16:54:00 2020 No.11874546 Numbers whose digits repeat forever are defined to be the limit of the sequence.Obviously, the limit of 0.999... (aka 9/10 + 9/100 + ... + 9/10^n) as n goes to infinity is 1.

 >> Anonymous Mon Jul 6 17:44:14 2020 No.11874692 >>11874517I think the part where you're getting confused is your own inherent concept of infinity. In the 0.99999... representation, the number of 9's is infinite. Consider also your idea of 0.99999... and 1 being distinct on the number line. If that were the case you would be able to find a point in between the two (a property of the real numbers). Once you grasp intuitively that you can't construct such a number, you should realise that both 0.99999... and 1 are equal.

Their minds have been programmed to believe eternity and infinity are impossibilities. Over the course of many generations of indoctrination into an alien worldview, their parents and their parents etc gradually "learned" to be unable to comprehend it and this "learned disability" was inherited, and encouraged/fueled by various external factors from the echoing modern culture.So basically, they're mentally damaged.This difficulty they have with eternity/infinity shows up in many different fields, from math to astrophysics.This mental handicap is inherited directly from the (((Abrahamic))) religions, more specifically (((Christianity))) for us Westernerns. In it's origin, the inability to understand infinity and eternity is 100% Judaic in thought/philosophy. In contrast, the non-Jewish man; the Pagan man, at least the /European/ Pagan man, never had any problem with infinity and eternity. (((Christianity))) introduced into the minds of people the idea of life and the world/universe being linear, starting from point A and ending at a point B, whereas in the Native European worldview everything is an infinite circle.That's why many people today can't understand that .999 repeating forever will never reach 1 - they refuse to accept the idea of an infinite/eternal repetition. Saying "it's 1" is their method of escaping from the uncomfortable (and to them insurmountable) challenge which the concept of infinity/eternity is to their Judaically-induced mental disease.
