The idea of an object with gravity strong enough to prevent light from escaping was proposed in 1783 by John Michell, an amateur British astronomer. In 1795, Pierre-Simon Laplace, a French physicist independently came to the same conclusion.Black holes, as currently understood, are described by the general theory of relativity. This theory predicts that when a large enough amount of mass is present in a sufficiently small region of space, all paths through space are warped inwards towards the center of the volume, preventing all matter and radiation within it from escaping.
The term black hole to describe this phenomenon dates from the mid-1960s, though its precise origins are unclear. Physicist John Wheeler is widely credited with coining it in his 1967 public lecture 'Our Universe: the Known and Unknown', as an alternative to the more cumbersome "gravitationally completely collapsed star". However, Wheeler insisted that someone else at the conference had coined the term and he had merely adopted it as useful shorthand. The term was also cited in a 1964 letter by Anne Ewing to the AAAS.
There are no ‘black holes’, there is no ‘dark matter’, comets are not ‘dirty snowballs’, the sun is not a ‘nuclear furnace’, and the origins of world mythology are not primitive invention but can be directly linked to deep space exploration and leading-edge experiments in plasma physics.
5,000 year old rock art, the origins of world mythology, planetary history, spectacular nebular forms in deep space, and high energy electric discharges in the plasma laboratory – all are inextricably linked by the Electric Model.

You are giving humanistic qualities to this "supposed" infinity chaos randomness intelligence.
Regardless of what "some" so called mathematicians, physicists, etc; may believe they can prove, there are countless others in the same fields with data and results that point contrarily. For instance, let's take black holes.
What it means is that using our existing knowledge in electricity, we can use that real, tangible and provable math/physics; to test and explain all those aforementioned things. In turn giving us results that are "infinitely" more accurate than say those of the theories you discussed.
Your post also seemed to be quasi religious in nature, while perhaps unintentional; there nonetheless. To be blunt, needing to bring faith into a discussion to drive home an idea, is off putting to most "beings".

how do you expierience infinity?
So what you're trying to say is that "infinity" (all possibilities) is like a god (omniscient, omnipresent, omnipotent being) and we are all limited humans (how disgusting) that only have "pieces" of "infinity" worked out, right? Any proof for your assumptions?
how do you expierience infinity?
You've gotta let go of everyone and everything.
Beyond this, I can't explain. You just gotta have the experience.

Why would you think it disgusting to admit that we are in fact, quite limited in what we fully know?
We know next to nothing.
We are capable of sensing less than .01 percent of the universe in our current state, and through the 5 accepted senses.
I find it to be no more than arrogance to think we're not very, very limited as human beings.

Is infinity complete without the number 1 or the number 2 or 3 or so on? Also is number 1 complete by itself and represents the whole????
The only proof Im giving is for Infinity existing in reality ...not just a mere postulation/theory. It has to exist because mathematical formulas prove scientific facts and math uses numbers, sums, fragments of infinity to prove facts.

Nothing is ever random. Randomness does not exist because everything has a cause.
No physical theory of local hidden variables can ever reproduce all of the predictions of quantum mechanics.

but look at this important statement:
infinity is impossible without us.
