That is incorrect. A infinite number of tasks CAN be completed in a finite
time if the duration of the first task is half a second and the second is a
quarter of a second and the third a eighth of a second etc.  In this case
even though there are a infinite number of tasks they are all completed in
exactly one second.

But obviously if there are a infinite number of tasks with a *fixed length*
they can't all be completed in a finite time. That was your original
scenario so obviously that's not the way motion works.
