Does that make a lava lamp infinite as well?
MATHEMATICSa number greater than any assignable quantity or countable number (symbol ∞).
Infinity = Constancy of ChangeFinite = Absence of Change

Key to that infinite struggle, as a snake chasing its tail, could be EM and G, light and location of actual mass.
And if you could bury your pride and ego for a moment, you might just figure out that question of yours someday.
I didn't realize we had a finite quantity of countable numbers.
Ö.at worst, a re-piecing of the puzzle of facts to give a new picture outcome....
We don't nor did the definition you quoted imply such a thing.
Then it implies, "greater than any assignable quantity or countable number"Clearly, it implies exactly what you say it doesn't imply.
We're eventually going to run out of quantities or countable numbers somewhere.
Even if I took it out of context, and assumed we could count indefinitely, then infinity doesn't exist at all, because we never run out of countable numbers to reach infinity.
What sense does any of that make?
If I created an idea as such, and posted on a site like this, I'd be crucified by everyone. Moderators might even shut down the thread if I kept arguing what I saw as the truth, which is clearly nonsense.
The definition doesn't say that there are a limited amount of countable numbers.
I think this perfectly sums up all 117 posts.Infinity = constancy of changefinite = absence of change
