Very nice thread sky!
Perhaps another way of understanding infinity is simply to define the finite. Infinite is what's left after that. And I have to really wonder if
anything, including the Creator, is actually infinite.
Some might argue that "time" is infinite. Some might argue that the universe is infinite. In the truest sense of the word though, can they really be
infinite? Everything else, including the stars, moons, planets, and solar systems arguably had (or will have) a beginning and an end.
It could be that the only thing that is truly infinite is the Creator. Because it appears that everything the Creator created is finite. It could be
that our spirits are infinite- because as it is hypothesized, every person is a tiny part of the Creator, and our souls supposedly return in some
form, or at some level, back to the Creator at death.
You bring to bear in your discussion though extremely important words to really live by. As long as you are alive, everything is finite. Everything.
Problems and pain as well as happiness and pleasure. All finite. Ego is finite. Fear is finite. The body is finite.
Any word that you can think of is finite, even the word "infinite." For how can one truly understand such a word in a world where everything has a
beginning and an end? Even the word "Creator" is finite to me, because after death that concept as you knew it on earth will likely change when you
get reabsorbed back into the Creator.
"Time" in itself is just a word attempting to describe a linear passage of our lives on this planet as we perceive them. When really what we think
of as time may be no such thing at all in the eyes of the Creator. If the Creator created the vast universe, the Creator, it would stand to reason
also can end its creation at any "time." The Creator may be the only thing that is actually infinite. But for the purposes of discussion and the
bearing of fruit, "infinity" suited your purposes quite beautifully.
