I'm not going to remove my post, I'm going to repeat it.

Asking you to explain what you mean is not trolling or thread hijacking.

reply 251 & 259 is not asking anything.

And this...QuoteI'm not going to remove my post, I'm going to repeat it....is threatening more of the same

Please delete 251 & 259

I will continue explaining, which I've done the past 261 posts.

What would be the point in that?

It isn't that there is a "point" to it, it's just that it would be just as valid as what you are saying. Someone can say 0%<∞<100% and have it mean the exact same thing as 0<∞<1. The number 1 can refer to a whole, but so can 100%. It's just a matter of preference on which you use.

0, obviously, does not exist.

An infinite value is marked by continual change, like pi, for example

Pi is not infinite.

It's not even infinite according to his own definition, because it isn't continually changing. The value of pi is very much a fixed value. It's the same now as it was yesterday.

That's the tricky thing about space-time. No two moments are the same. I'm willing to bet if you started calculating right now, you'd notice the decimal changing the longer you tried to resolve it. You can probably predict that change out to about 2.7 trillion decimal places. I think that's as far as they've gotten currently. I wonder where you'd be if you started on the problem yesterday...

The fourth digit in pi is 1. That's not going to change regardless of when you started the calculation. The same is true for all of the other digits too.

So what you're saying is that all numbers are finite?

infinity=constancy of change, not "a number"

then I'm the one who's doing the changing

Finite=absence of changeInfinite=constancy of change

The universe may very well be infinite, so your claim doesn't seem to be under very heavy opposition. However, there are still many who believe that the universe is finite, and to them, the saying, "Finite=absence of change" must certainly seem wrong. They have a good case too, because when it comes to observations, the observable universe, our Hubble view, seems to be expanding at an accelerating rate. That is continual change in anyone's book.

It would take an infinite amount of time to resolve pi. That's what makes it infinite.

When you see the value continually changing...

A part of me feels, 1/0, may be the real answer.

Then you're not talking about pi, because it doesn't continually change.

1/0 has no answer. No number of zeroes added together equals one, not even an infinite number of them.

Pi would still have the value that it does whether we were trying to resolve it or not.
