Ummm...respectfully...may I disagree....what would we say of 1 + 0 + 2....
Shall we say it is infinite...+2?
Does not work my friend...sorry...mathematically it is inaccurate!

if it is on 0=infinity, well thats just ridiculous. one is nothing and one is everything.

For these different concepts of mathematics to work, is if you go into quantum mathematics, that is where 0 would equal something other than 0. I believe in some other higher math functions 0 equals something other that 0.
As for saying you can not get something from nothing, again look into the quantum, this is occurring all the time, and as stated by Hawking the Universe just popped in from no where.

Break one pencil in half, throw one part away and continue to keep breaking such in half etc. At what stage do i reach Zero ??? I know such may become too small to divide, yet i know i can never reach 0.. To reach infinity means a continued addition and thats what space keeps doing does it not ?? So yes Math's are handy, yet still become wrong. Great thread, keep up the good work...

hmm, ok, so thinking more into this, 0 is the infinite potential to be anything and everything, and infinity is the actual existence of anything and everything, am i right?
Infinity is the all-inclusive formlessness. 0 is the all-disclusive formlessness. One has potential for a designated value, the other does not.

No, infinity is the potential. 0 is invalid.

You cannot break it in to sub primes and factors without zero...again I respectfully disagree...zero without denomination is voiding all of the factors then....
I would say we should agree to disagree here...there is no new formula...unless you care to provide one...1+0 is always going to be 1...it is not infinite....it is one!
Are you providing a new formula...or just theorizing?

The statements in the opening post forgets that one is greater than infinity.
What I said was, you can throw infinity in anywhere in the equation and it will still operate the way 0 did. So 1+infinity+2+3+infinity still only equals 6. This is due to the fact that anything that is defined in the context of infinity arises as an entity in and of itself apparently separated from infinity but still a finite part of infinity.

I'll take one dollar over infinite dollars any day.
