”This moment exhibits infinite space, but there is a space also wherein all moments are infinitely exhibited, and the everlasting duration of infinite space is another region and room of joys.”
Thomas Traherne (1636-1674)
Infinity is time or space that has no end or limits.
Infinite is unlimited or un-measurable in extent of space, duration of time, etc.
There are in fact two separate assumptions: “infinitely big” and “infinitely small.” Infinitely big means that space can have infinite volume, that time can continue forever, and that there can be infinitely many physical objects.
Infinitely small is the opposite continuum—the idea that even a liter of space contains an infinite number of points, that space can be stretched out indefinitely without anything bad happening, and that there are quantities in nature that can vary continuously.
Both are unproveable; we lack evidence for the infinite because the best computer simulations, accurately describing everything from the formation of galaxies to tomorrow’s weather to the masses of elementary particles, use only finite computer resources by treating everything as finite. However, the concept of energy and all metaphysics has infinity embedded in it, because outside of time, quantum physics shows us that only energy, and unmeasurable space/container concept, can exist. So spiritually, if the spirit and our spirit are energetic instances, both are infinite!
I am infinite in depth, within my skin is Xconscious, and space; beyond the smallest matter Love’s energy exists.
I am also infinite in connection, outside of my skin all consciousness is my family, all within the vast presence of love.
“The Universe is very, very big.
It also loves a paradox. For example, it has some extremely strict rules.
Rule number one: Nothing lasts forever.
Not you or your family or your house or your planet or the sun. It is an absolute rule. Therefore when someone says that their love will never die, it means that their love is not real, for everything that is real dies.
Rule number two: Everything lasts forever.”
