Nothing about your existence is finite in the strictest definition of the word.

Yes, we were created about 14 billion years ago. I'm not disputing that.

There is no beginning, and there is no end.

I expect to live less than 100 years.In the real world, that's finite.

You didn't "dispute" it, you contradicted it.

were created about 14 billion years ago.

Have you now realised one of your mistakes?

finite=absence of change

No one knows if the universe is finite or infinite.

By this definition, the numbers between 0 and 1 are finite since they aren't changing. They are what they are and don't become anything else. 0.34 doesn't change into anything else no matter how long you wait.

This contradicts your previous claim that you have proven the Universe to be infinite.

I've said many times, there are only two real finite values in the universe, both being absolute. 0 and Ι1Ι.

It's ironic that you say there are only two real finite values in the Universe, since you are using a number other than zero and one to describe them. If two is not a finite value, is it an infinite value?

We use numbers as a tool.

So the number two doesn't exist?

You aren't making any sense.

You seem to be saying that zero and one are real numbers but two isn't. Is that what you are saying?

Technically, no numbers physically "exist". All numbers as we understand them will cease to exist with our more than likely inevitable extinction. Still don't know what point you're trying to make.Numbers are a tool. We can reduce the application of numbers down to 2 when describing the universe, 0 and 1, and then add the variability of infinity. Numbers are a tool.

But do you consider zero and one to somehow be more real than two?

Your time would be better spent trying to understand what I am saying,

This has nothing to do with anything though

Sure it does. How can you use a "less real" number (two) to describe "more real" numbers (zero and one)? What sense does it make to say that one integer is more or less real than another integer? They are all conceptual. They all have the same level of reality.

Clearly you understand all this though, and in the context of applying 0 and 1 to the entire universe, yes, they're a bit more significant than the others.

But you can rephrase your argument using any numbers you want to. Instead of using 1 to describe the whole Universe, you could just as easily use 10 while saying everything between 0 and 10 represents your definition of infinity. If logic and concepts are all that matter and numbers are an arbitrary invention of man, then there is no one right or wrong way to write it down.

Now you're trolling Bored_Chemist. Remove the post please.

Then try explaining it rather than just posting stuff that's obviously not true.
