In the past, many logical problems created by infinity have been
unsolvable, but the purpose of this paper is to lessen the problems and
to show that infinity has the answers to all questions.
"Infinity commonly inspires feelings of awe, futility and fear. Who
as a child did not lie in bed filled with a slowly mounting terror while sinking
into the idea of a universe that goes on and on, forever and ever? Blasé Pascal
puts this feeling very well. 'When I consider the small span of my life absorbed
in the eternity of all time, or the small part of space which I can touch or see
engulfed by the infinite immensity of spaces that I know not and that know me
not, I am frightened and astonished to see my self here instead of there … now
instead of then.'"
Before delving into the topic of infinity, the concept must be
clearly understood. "Infinite" is described by Webster's Dictionary as being,
"1. adj. absolutely without limits, endless || too great to be
measured on any imaginable scale, God's infinite mercy || (loosely) very great
|| (gram., of a verb form) not limited by person, number or mood || (math.) of a
value or series the limit of which cannot be defined or expressed 2. n.
something infinite [fr. L. infinitus, unbounded]" |
