Does this reasoning ever reach infinity? 0<1<2<3<4<5

So the chain

0<1<2<3...

1. Never ends while reaching infinity?

2. Never ends and does not ever reach infinity?
We don't really talk about reaching infinity. Infinity is a concept, not a number; you can not perform most mathematical procedures on it. (For example you cannot claim that infinity/infinity = 1)

We talk about numbers as they approach infinity. I guess that's tantamount to your #2.
