If I'm in a car travelling at 60km per hour and I slow down to a stand still, I'm travelling at 0km per hour, not and infinite number of km per hour.
My speed would be 0km per hour.

How can you be "traveling" and be at a stand still. you have stopped you are no longer traveling. However at he moment you begin to travel again it can be said that you may travel infinitely.

0 is a number, but infinity is not a number. Infinite is a process.
The infinite is not a process. It is stationary. Finite is a process, it has momentum.
But you are right about 0. It is just a number.
In mathematics it is a process. It means that something increases without bound.
Ok. But physically the infinite can't expand. What dimension would it expand within?

Complete chaos? the eleventh dimension? Well this is where infinity will reside but you are right infinity cannot expand.

Speed would be the measurement used to gauge how fast or slow something is moving? If you are not moving, relative to the context, there is no measure of speed.

Just to state infinite is not or any way can be calculated. If u think about it what u consider to be infinite, at one millosecond has a destint amount and an exact number.... To say it is impossible to have infinite anything is physically impossible. 0 is a consept. I am right now holding 0 apples. How do I know this? Cause I'm hungry if I was holding an apple I would be eating it. 0 can be calculated into problems. Yes it serves no perpose to add 1+0=1 but it can physically be done. I can see ur consept but infinite is physically impossible and 0 can be proven. I hope my input helps out.
