Systems are real and logical processes.
Systems work.
Our universe is a system, therefore a logical process.
No amount of time is = to ANY fraction of infinity.
Yet, here we are, living in a logical system.
Infinity is incompatible with logic.
Infinity sounds like a cool idea. But it's not logical within the logical framework we use to measure our universe.
Time for a change of ideas.

Infinity (symbolically represented by ∞) refers to several distinct concepts – usually linked to the idea of "without end" – which arise in philosophy, mathematics, and theology. The word comes from the Latin infinitas or "unboundedness."
In mathematics, "infinity" is often used in contexts where it is treated as if it were a number (i.e., it counts or measures things: "an infinite number of terms") but it is a different type of "number" from the real numbers. Infinity is related to limits, aleph numbers, classes in set theory, Dedekind-infinite sets, large cardinals, Russell's paradox, non-standard arithmetic, hyperreal numbers, projective geometry, extended real numbers and the absolute Infinite.

If we measure how long it takes to calculate Pi to its end,
won't we be measuring infinity?
Anyway, it sounds like you've been listening to a little Bad Religion there.
Perhaps the best-known irrational numbers are PI, e and √2.
