What is infinite?What are the laws of infinite?What happens if we add the same infinite number to the infinite?Will it become 2 *infinite?
What will happen if we subtract lesser infinite number from that infinite? Will it still remain infinite?
LOL, you can check in but you can't check out.YouTube knows everything!

LOL, you can check in but you can't check out. I've been interested in what is infinite and what isn't for a long time.
There are any number of discussions on it and links that you can go to if you Google it, but there are a few things that you can say with conviction after you think about it for awhile.
Some things that are infinite can have a beginning, but if they have a beginning they cannot have an end.
Some things that are infinite don't have a beginning, but even if they don't have a beginning they can't have an end.
Therefore, things that end are not infinite .
I wonder if someone can find an exception to that?
And while we're at it, there is this:
Anything finite is almost nothing, almost never, almost nowhere, relative to the infinite.
How many points lie between 1 & 2 on the numberline?Some things that are infinite can have a beginning, but if they have a beginning they cannot have an end.

Hmm, yes, infinite; so much for conviction, lol.Confusing. What about, say, a line that ended but had no beginning ? Infinite or not ?
Excellent. That is a good one.How many points lie between 1 & 2 on the numberline?
That is true and in a debate you might win on that point. But I gave gmilam the conventional definition of a point relative to a line, i.e. there are an infinite number of points between a start point at 1 and an end point at 2, which is an example of an infinite number with a start and an end that falsifies my logic, even though the actual number of points is nonsensical.I think what often happens is we mix imaginary things with real things. A point is imaginary - it has no existence in itself. From some checking I just done in various maths definitions, etc, a point is .. well, just that - a reference point - a marker - no physical existence in itself. It is NO THING.
Therefore to draw a line on a piece of paper (A THING) and then say how many NO THINGS are on it is nonesensical IMO.
