Default Does this disprove we are mortal?

There’s a sequence of events and there’s an infinite number of them and they all occur consecutively non-overlapping. You will witness all of the neverending sequence

The first event is 1 second long
The second event is 0.5 seconds long
The third event is 0.25 seconds long
The fourth event is 0.125 seconds long
The fifty event is 0.0625 seconds long
The sixth event is 0.03125 seconds long
And each one is half as long as previous

You WILL live to see all infinite events if you count just 2 seconds

But there’s a Planck length. Has to apply to every geometric series including the math of the diagonal of a 45-45-90 degree triangle being root 2 and yet drawn to perfectly intersect both of the perpendicular sides of the triangle ...it meets where Planck forces a finite end, else the root 2 instruction code will never give you an intersecting point.

Ok I can buy that. At that Planck then, sub/time sequences merge. If this is the case Then something else has to merge when length contraction due to Lorenz factor from linear travel at speeds close enough to the speed of light, interfere with prior Planck length and new Planck length ...has to mean at some higher speed close to light, your life and 100,000,000,000 years are merged into the Planck of another reference frame

If that observation is theoretical at that reference frame, then to another reference frame there’s no severing your existence from ...an infinitely many years after .... hence we cannot prove we are mortals in ALL reference frames

You should probably first consider the framerate of the human eye (and brain)?
