is Incorrect

    Throughout the history of mathematics it has been found that infinity can be tricky, in fact, very, very tricky. And, considering this essay, when working with infinity you must be aware that in three dimensional reality, a.k.a. the real world, or the world we live in, infinity cannot exist between two points.
    It is always important to distinguish what can exist only in the imagination from what exists simultaneously in the imagination and in the real world. Since pi is used to represent a real, material object, it cannot be infinite.
    To prove that infinity cannot exist between two points in the real world—the imagination, three dimensional reality, mathematics, and logic will be used.
    1. Consider two objects in space. They start traveling away from each other faster and faster, but no matter how fast they go nor how long they travel there will never be an infinite distance between them. Picture this in your imagination.
    This is logical proof that infinity cannot exist between two objects in the real world, but this is an expanding distance proof. What about as two objects come closer together? Can there be an infinite, diminishing distance between them? This is an important question for determining pi, because pi is an infinite number which is getting closer and closer as it closes in on an infinitely distant end point.
   One must understand that numbers do not exist in Nature—they are a man made tool. In Nature a distance isn’t determined by numbers. When you cross a certain distance, numbers will not keep you from getting to the end of the distance. In the real world infinity does not exist in a distance. When two objects are closing in on each other, the distance will always be finite until the objects touch, and then there will be no distance between them.
    When you see two objects, such as a pen and a pencil laying on a desk about a hand's width apart, you don't view the distance with numbers. Only numbers can make distance infinite. In the real world it's just a distance that can become greater if you move the pen and pencil away from each other, or shorter if you move them toward each other. When mathematicians create infinity between two points they are working in the imagination, not the real world. And the work they're doing will never transpose to the world we live in.
