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]" |
