Start from e.g. x=1/​2. ​ Obtain a series converging to 1, but 1 is not a fixed point because $f(1)=5/4$. - This is because $f$ is not continuous. + This is because $f$ is not continuous.  If it was continous (at least, continuous from the left), we would have the desired property. Whenever we converge to some $x^*$, we take $f(x^*)$ and continue iterating and taking limits (the "​number of times" to iterate, even if infinite, depends on the size of the lattice, which can be formalized [[wk>​ordinal number]]s).
