With this model of thought you have both infinity and a universe that isn't all rock (as you put it).
IMO The energy that is infinite, and came before the known universe, was of a different form, and ultimately at some level still exists (because it's infinite).

But that also would have happened infinitely.

My point is :
For true understanding of numbers we have to understand infinity and nothingness first. Between 1 and 0 there are infinite number of elements so we cannot realy know what is the first number after 0.
and
1 = d + d + d + d + ................ , where d goes to nothingness
which means 1 is the sum of infinite number of infinitely small elements.
...
Actually If you study my point of view you can come to a strange possibility of 1 coming from 0 , or everything came from nothing.

So I do remember some of my calculus from college correctly, then?
If you could travel along a number line long enough, you'd eventually wind up back at 0.
I think my professor was trying to tell us, that pretty much the infinitely large and the infinitely small are the same thing.
You sound like you have a decent grasp on these things to me, and I'd like to know your thoughts.

The BAD news is that LEIBNIZ had a much better concept working for him (this is my opinion). He introduced the infinitesimal. Where do you learn about the infinitesimal? ALMOST NOWHERE!

Infinity, the word, the symbol, the mathematical concept, is not limitless.... unbounded, but not limitless
