But I thought you were close to getting to infinity?

Infinite value is it.
Sounds nice, but for what?

Quite a promise.

I have a value for infinity, trouble is, it goes on a bit!!!

If someone came up with a value for infinity, surely they could never write it down, since it would go on for ever!!!! Wouldn't it???


Or would it be something like (XYZ)recurring. So perhaps 'πr' is what you want.

I have absolutely no idea what I'm bubbling on about, but perhaps you had already figured that out!

You can't "invent infinity value".

Whoever invents it, I'm going to add 1 to it.

I'll divide by the number I first thought of.

This guy did quite a lot on infinity, including proving that there are at least two different infinities- one is bigger than the other.

Is this going to go on ad infinitum?
