Our intention, with this essay, is outlining.

Outlining what?

A new vision of infinity that you may appreciate.

A New Vision Of Information

Our world is rich with information.

Some may argue that our world is, in fact, made of information.

No matter what, though, information is integral to our experience of ourselves, the universe, and life itself.

Our new vision of infinity centers on information.

Right now, within this moment, imagine that our world is made of a finite amount of information.

A finite amount of information that contains, within itself, all of the:

  • Records
  • Books
  • Websites
  • Ideas
  • Essays
  • Words
  • Stories
  • Memories
  • Films
  • Dreams

And so on and so forth.

Our world consists of, and may be made from, those things.

And, with that in mind, let’s imagine that, right now, within our world, there are 100 bits of information.

Each one of these bits is comprised of what we have outlined above.

All of this serves as the foundation of a new vision of infinity.

Our New Vision Of Infinity

Our world is comprised of 100 bits.

Every single one of these bits is rich with information.

Just imagine, then, that all of the information in the world is doubled.

100 bits turns into 200 bits.

And so on and so forth, endlessly and infinitely; ad infinitum.

Every second, the information, within our world, is doubled.

Just imagine the vastness that arises from this.

If you have 158 trillion books, then that turns into 316 trillion books and, then, 632 trillion books.

And so on and so forth, endlessly and infinitely; ad infinitum.

The vastness continues to rise, grow, and evolve with remarkable ease.

But, that’s not all.

You can play with, and expand on, this vision of infinity in a neverending wealth of new ways.

Just as an example, instead of information doubling every second, it triples every nanosecond.

A nanosecond is a single millionth of a second.

You can further envision the vastness of this and, in doing so, allow yourself to appreciate this vastness.

Conclusion

Just to wrap this up, thank you so much for reading!

As always, best wishes and, of course, please have a great day!
