That is my view too, infinitesimals. Essentially it can't be a number because it is constantly changing, its always going to be more or less than itself, never equal, and not any other number.  All irrational and rational numbers are real numbers. 1/3 = 0.3333...
and it is the quotient of 2 integers, so it is rational, and therefore in the set of real numbers. Irrational numbers, like pi and radical 2, are not equal to the quotient of any integers, but they are still real numbers.
