If light speed is constant, experience of time may vary. In this way, numbers are objectively affected by the shape of space.
If, in the .999 . . . question, you are applying the question to matter, the distance o 1.0 is bridged by the unit of space being considered,whether it is between chairs or between quarks. If two particles drift close enough together for their properties to influence one another's location, then 1.0 is reached.
In the case of chairs or particles, the moment of 1.0 may be short.
