As I've said before, there are infinite integers, but integers still exist. So do decimals. The fact that there is an infinity between 1 and Infinity does not mean that there is an infinity between 1 and 1.01.

when you think about it, time is a word we created with a definition to explain things that already happened, are happening now, and things that haven't happened yet
trying to explain the way the universe works (discussing time/infinity/eternity) is over our heads as human beings, just like the Egyptians when they couldn't explain why the Nile river flooded the same time every year, so they started the calendar, and when they couldn't figure out why it rained, they said it was a God and gave it a name
something that was over their heads, they created a word with a definition and explanation to satisfy themselves, and I think that is what time is, another example just like that, and we have yet to discover the true workings of "time" and the universe

I sure am glad I don't smoke pot anymore, or this thread would have me all twisted up.
