    you will never reach the door, though you'd only be an inch away after 6 moves so you would be able to open the door in reality..

    Technically, never, by going half the distance each time. However, practically, if I "reach" for the door, it would depend on my arms length, so in my case, two moves.

    you can't get there, you will forever be half as far away from the door as you were the step before.
