0.999 recurring answer

Perhaps like the tortoise and the hare it is a time problem
consider a number of 0.99999 repeating having to exist at a certain point in time
Like to do a maths problem.
While you are going to do it, it has an infinitesimal, whatever that is, but when you add it to 1 and get 2, in the moment that you have added it, it turns into a 1.
In other words while you are considering it it is always less than 1 but whenever  you use it it becomes 1.
problem solved.
