You Can Never Reach Infinity — Part 02

Our goal, with this essay, is to clarify three more visions of infinity.

You can find the first part right here.

And. with that out of the way, let’s begin!

Vision 04: A Neverending Quantity

Our fourth vision is rooted within the idea of a “super quantity.”

Come to think of it, that is incorrect.

Rather, our fourth vision is the idea of a super quantity.

A super quantity is a quantity.

Just as an example, if you have ten pint-sized containers of ice cream, then that is a quantity.

You can apply this concept to anything.

A super quantity is more than just a regular quantity.

Rather, a super quantity is, in fact, a singular entity that contains and, somewhat paradoxically, generates, an infinite number of unique bodies, structures, and networks; ad infinitum.

Every single one of these bodies, structures, and networks contains, and generates, an infinite number of quantities.

Each one of these quantities is infinite.

Or, more specifically, each singular quantity contains, and may even generate, an infinite number of items.

Just as an example, if you have a super quantity of books, then you have an infinite number of bodies, structures, and networks — ad infinitum — that each contain, and generate, an infinite number of singular quantities, each of which is a single set that contains an infinite number of unique books.

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

You can go through a single super quantity, each one infinitely rich with infinite quantities of books, every single second.

And, even if you do this for eternity after eternity, you would never reach an end to the infinite wealth of books that comprise the infinity these super quantities serve as a container/interface for.

You can apply that same line of thought to anything. And, it is this fact that brings us to our fifth vision…

Vision 05: A Super Eternity

Our fifth vision is remarkably similar to the previous vision.

But, there is one fundamental difference: our concept serves as a container, and generator, for eternities.

A super eternity is a singular entity that contains, and generates, an infinite number of bodies, structures, and networks — ad infinitum — each of which contains an infinite number of eternities.

Every eternity exists as a singularity.

A singularity that contains infinite time.

You can go through an eternity forever and ever and, in doing so, you would never reach the end of an eternity.

And, the reason for the above is, of course, because an eternity, much like infinity, has no ending.

A super eternity contains an infinite number of unique eternities.

Even if you went through an infinite concept or space or notion — ad infinitum, of course — for a super eternity — or, even, an infinite number of super eternities — you would never, ever reach the end of what you are exploring.

And, of course, the reason for that is because infinity, by its very nature, has no ending.

All of these concepts lead us to our sixth vision…

Vision 06: Unending Flexibility

The concept of a super quantity/super eternity is infinitely flexible.

You can, for example, take the concept of a “super quantity” and turn it into a “transcendent super quantity,” which serves as a singular entity that contains, and generates, infinite super quantities.

Or, just as another example, you can develop a singularity, of sorts, that exists as an infinite structure that contains and, of course, generates an infinite number of fractal systems, structures, and networks — ad infinitum — that grow and generate and contain — ad infinitum — an infinite wealth of concepts, ideas, and notions; ad infinitum.

Every single one of these concepts, ideas, and notions — ad infinitum — serves as a transcendence of singular super quantities and singular transcendent super quantities; ad infinitum.

A neverending process of growth, evolution, and novelty; ad infinitum.

Just as an example of the above, you have a super quantity and, then, above that, a transcendent super quantity that is followed by something higher.

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

You can apply this same line of thought to our “super eternity” concept.

Outside of what was clarified above, you can play with the idea of each quantity, within a super quantity, containing and, of course, generating, items.

Rather than containing/generating items, a super quantity may contain singular collections, each of which contains an infinite wealth of items.

And, if the above is true, then every super quantity contains infinite quantities of infinite collections that each contain infinite items.

Or, it may be that none of these elements involve, or contain/generate, items.

Rather, every single one of these elements may serve as a nexus for infinite sets, series, lists, arrays — ad infinitum — each of which serves as an infinite universe with infinite elements, facets, bits — ad infinitum — ideas, concepts, experiences — ad infinitum — and, well, you get the idea; ad infinitum.

Just as an example of the above, a super quantity may contain/generate infinite structures, bodies, and networks — ad infinitum — each of which contains/generates infinite sets, series, lists, and arrays — ad infinitum — each of which serves as an infinite universe that one can interface with in order to explore something that is infinite.

And, of course, even if the above is true, and even if you dived into a single super quantity, of this sort, every single second or half a second or Planck Time — ad infinitum — there is still no ending, or genuine boundary, to this super quantity or the infinite space or idea or thing — ad infinitum — that is being interfaced with.

Conclusion

Our next six visions of infinity serve as aesthetic visions.

Each one of these aesthetic visions interacts with the six ideas outlined previously.

My hope is that you enjoy these visions and, even more than that, that you enjoyed these visions.

Regardless of that, though, thank you so much for reading!
