And I also believe that in order to think that 1 + 1/2 + 1/4 + ... = 1 in the physical world requires that one also accepts the physical reality of the objects of ZFC (whatever they are. They're very far from the sets envisioned naively by Cantor.) But clearly you are one such. And I have no arguments beyond those I've already made. So I'm afraid I have to leave it at that.
