Now the infinity symbol effectively represents the greatest possible sets of numerical values for all possible variables.
Every possible variation is included, and nothing is excluded.

Sorry if this has been discussed before but it really made me think.
This morning I was listening to C2C with guest Dr. Kaku, and a caller brought up this equation, sort of in comparison to this famous equation, E = MC2.
1 = intelligence
This could mean any intelligent "being" capable of thought, or reason, like you, or I. (in order for the equation to work, you must subscribe to the idea that you are "real", that you exist)
∞ (Infinity) = very simply, anything you can imagine...Every possibility, any possibility exists somewhere in our Universe.
Now, if you replace the 1 with a 0....no intelligent life = 0 (no existence, no Universe)
Thoughts?

So for dividing by zero – what is the number of cookies that each person receives when 10 cookies are evenly distributed amongst 0 people? Certain words can be pinpointed in the question to highlight the problem. The problem with this question is the "when". There is no way to distribute 10 cookies amongst 0 people. In mathematical jargon, a set of 10 items cannot be partitioned into 0 subsets. So , at least in elementary arithmetic, is said to be either meaningless, or undefined.

As for 1 = infinity, I'm just going to have to straight up disagree. It makes no sense within the context of mathematics.

I retract my previous equation. I don't think it describes the universe
I now claim this one is correct:
Ω=Ω
Indeed, it has a deep meaning.

Well you are straight up wrong about that.
1) There are infinite possible points in between zero and one.
2) Infinity is one infinite set of variables.

Actually it's both +1 and -1. Infinity, like 0, has no polarity.

Any comments / thoughts on the assumption that if there is no intelligent life to observe it, the Universe wouldn't exist?

If it doesn't, why do we integrate from - to + infinity in some cases?
