This reminds me of this puzzle: An attractive woman is waiting for a male mathematician who is 10 meters away. As each minute passes, the man moves half the remaining distance closer.

Question: Will the man reach the location woman in any finite time?
Answer: No, but he will get close enough for all practical purposes.
