What if I say Infinity is simple to understand ? Will you agree?. Well, Here I give you some facts about Infinity to better understand it. After this you can accept that infinity is really simple. don't forget to subscribe my blog.
  • Ancient cultures had various ideas about the nature of infinity. The ancient Indians and Greeks did not define infinity in precise formalism as does modern mathematics, and instead approached infinity as a philosophical concept.
  • Infinity, is not big, it's not huge, it's not tremendously large, or it's neither extremely humongously enormous. It is Endless!
  • If there is no reason something should stop, then it is infinite.
  • Infinity is not a real number, it is an idea. An idea of something without an end.
  • Infinity itself, symbolized by a figure that resembles a sideways 8, is not a number. You could write it in the format of an infinite number, such as a 1 followed by an infinite number of zeroes. This, however, is a concept, not a number.
  • Here comes a beautiful fact, Negative infinity is less than any Real number,
    and Infinity is greater than any Real number.
These are just common facts about infinity for simple understanding. In advanced discussions, such as Theoretical applications of physical infinity , Cosmology and etc.., infinity is dealt in complex manner which is not a simple concept. Unless a care is exercised, especially when dealing infinity as a common number, paradoxes arise readily.
