Is infinite time or space, or both as one?

Nobody else thinks so

MATHEMATICSa number greater than any assignable quantity or countable number (symbol ∞).

Infinity = constancy of changefinite = absence of change

Quote from: opportunity on 31/12/2018 12:20:30Is infinite time or space, or both as one?Space-time as we know from Einstein, is a bound state. As long as time keeps changing, both are infinite. If time ceased to exist, then space would be a finite state. Without time, change is meaningless.

Infinite time or infinite space....yeah, I got that as well.

You need to know what you're doing, right?

My definition...QuoteInfinity = constancy of changefinite = absence of change...explains both mathematically, and physically, what infinity represents. As I explained earlier, light would be a pretty good example.

MATHEMATICSa number greater than any assignable quantity or countable number (symbol ∞)....Is conjecture at best, and nonsense at its worst.

I have the opportunity for a valid input, is that it?

be brave at 80!

As has been pointed out, your "definition" fails to distinguish infinity from a lava lamp.and yet you say "

Infinity ≠ Lava lamp

Infinity = constancy of change

A finite universe is a crisis, right?

and a lava lamp does achieve constant change, so, by your argument it is infinity

But really, why would anyone feel a need to call a lava lamp infinite in the first place?

Because a (working) lava lamp is constantly changing, it is, according to your weird definition, infinite.That's a problem with your definition

What "number" is infinity? 10^300? 10^1000? 10^1000000? Are one of those the magic infinity "number" that is "greater than any assignable quantity or countable number"?

Oh wait, I think I get it. When I say 1, infinity = 2. When I say 2, infinity = 3. When I say 3, infinity = 4.

You cannot refer to infinity as a numeric value, which is exactly what the definition does do.
