This is true, Harte.
However, that idea is not what I'm addressing.
I speak to the fact that one can have an ever larger number, or an ever smaller number that never hits zero...not that a number cannot reach the zero point.
All one has to do to get to zero is get there.
What I'm saying is that if you have a rediculously large number , like 10E1,000,000...you can always make it larger. And if you have a ridculously small number like 10E-1,000,000, you can make it smaller indefinitely, without ever reaching zero (10E-1,000,000,000,000, for instance! ).
