what about negative numbers? minus 1 plus 1 = 0, so does minus infinity plus infinity also make 0?

Knowing this, you know that 0 +(n) = (n). Most people assume that infinity + (n) = infinity, but this is not true. The number (n) is a definition. It exists as something that is definable and it is finite. So the number (n) will arise from infinity in its own existence apparently separate from infinity. So infinity + (n) = (n).

You can not have a + infinity and a - infinity.
A absolute vacuum is only negative if there are matter/particles within its space.
A absolute vacuum is neutral, neither positive or negative.

i like you mate, but i can rebute your every answer. ok in this instance under QM the entaglement creates the place holder for the paper your about to hold in the future where a light is shining upon it so you can see it. though destroying the entanglement does not necessarily mean your paper wont exist, entanglement can be mutiple too, just see it that the universe is finite not infinite, a bit like a hard drive, you can delete an entanglement to create room for another, both not exist at the same time as the hard drive space is finite to an extent of reasoning.

They taught in school there is no such thing as a perfect absolute vacuum.
I don't think it has changed.
But it seems a lot of things that don't exist are being used in this thread.
Within our world for all practical purposes 0 = 0 , a infinity is a unlimited thing for all practical purposes.
With that being said they could in theory count or give a number for amount of atoms in Universe, rough number give or take a lot of 0s.

how about if you have 0.9999... and so on. am i right in thinking that there could be an infinite number of 9s after that decimal point, but it can be counted as the number 1 instead?
Surely that is adding something to infinity? (in a way)

this is called quantum entanglement, your absolutely right in your thinking. just that the theory of "there and not there simultaniously" is escaping a lot of peeps here.
another reason why zero cannot exist unless in an entangled state which is H.
oh dear 302 would become 32? no multiple use zero to give the outcome value greater than 32, but zero on its own is worthless unless entangled.
