[QUOTE=zylo;566136All the natural numbers appear as suffixes in both sums [/QUOTE]
So they are two series, not one. Their sum is defined only if both series converge separately.

I agree that there is something counter-intuitive about $1+3+5+\ldots +2+4+6+\ldots$ not being a rearrangement of $1+2+3+\ldots$. But from the point of view that $1+3+5+\ldots$ is a sum that never ends, we can clearly never get to the even numbers.
