ELI5 How does is infinitely divisible digital currency limited?

Just trying to wrap my head around it. Don't flame or insult. I'm just trying to understand.

21,000,000 btc exists. For arguments sake 20,999,999 lost in boating accident and have 1 btc left in circulation.

Lightning network can send a fraction of a Sat currently. In future W/ exorable technology probably send one trillionth of a Sat.

Each trillionth of a Sat value = $1 fiat or why not trillionth-trillionth of a Sat = $1 fiat.

With no minimum amount how is there scarcity?

I have one hamburger, I cut it in half, I have two half's of hamburgers. But since BTC has no set value I can say each half is worth one hamburger.

But my hamburger runs out of dividable pieces, BTC doesn't, so it's like saying I could split my hamburger into infinate pieces and it's worth infinite burgers.
