And yet I'm here. Like I said, I'm not sure "infinity" even exists.

Sorry but it's no you that we're referring to but the words After Infinity.
The concept of infinity exist but what's after infinity?
It's like that guy in the tv commercial asking some first grader kids what's greater than infinity?
One of the kid said infinity times infinity.
Cute...but nonsense.

Non of us are actually educated to differentiate finite from the infinite.
We are ecucated to understand that finite will expand indefinitely. But if you think about that for a moment.
You should know that a finite can not expand indefinitely on its own.
Let put it this way; Can a finite expand indefinitely if there is no infinite? It shouldent be able to.

Do you know what indefinitely means? It means "for an unspecified amount of time". It doesn't mean forever.

I was not educated to understand that 'finite' will expand.
Finite means limited in size or extent.
Finite are 'things' that come and go and can be measured.

Hmmm...I think we have more substance to work with when discussing the concept of "finite" than the concept of "infinite". I really don't feel there's any solidarity to the "infinite" because of that very reason.edit on 3-12-2013 by AfterInfinity because: (no reason given)

When you look up the definition of finite, how can you not have solidarity towards the infinite?
The definition of finite is: Not infinite. Having bounds or limits.
So how can you have finite if there is no infinite?
You can have only finite if you are of the impression that finite is infinite. But that goes aginst the definition of what finite is.edit on 27.06.08 by spy66 because: (no reason given)

I am just wondering why you have stated this (quoted below)?

I just posted the definition which is online so you can see that it is not common knowledge that 'finite expands indefinitely'.
Do you think the finite expands indefinitely?
There is no arguing going on - just getting clarity.
