Infinite Things II: Son of Infinite Things

by

Okay, Theremizzlers. Let’s try this again.

First of all, thank you for your list of mathematical things that are infinite.

Here is a follow-up question: What things are infinite in the universe? What things are infinite that are not merely conceptual?

Thank you,
Jackson

    Welllllll, how about things that may not be technically infinite, but are practically infinite — like the number of worlds in the universe? Or, better yet, the number of atoms in the universe.

  2. Jackson (Sketch Comedy) Says:

    What’s the distinction between technically infinite and practically infinite? Because I don’t think you could make more atoms in the universe without sacrificing some energy–and eventually you’d run out of energy. By “practically infinite” do you just mean “incomprehensibly ginormous?”

  3. Sebatinsky Says:

    Yes.

  4. Sebatinsky Says:

    I think the problem is that there are things that /might/ be infinite, but how can we know? We certainly can’t just count them up to infinity. What’s to say there isn’t an end somewhere past where we can see?
