there is the endless, unmeasureable distance of the straight line and there is the endlessly reducing distance that can exist between one point and another point

e.g.... one thousandth of a metre, one millionth of a metre, one billionth of a metre, one trillionth of a metre... ad infinitum

further, the point, used to designate a position, can be represented as a triangle, which has area as a two dimensional object and volume when projected into to three or more dimensions, and further still a triangle can reduce in size forever (see the golden ratio)

the smallest distance used by science is one planck length

( 1^ - 40 of a metre )
