Regarding Chris Oz' "The Absurdity of Infinity," I will say that it is not infinity that is absurd, but rather certain individuals' treatment or interpretations of it.

The problem is that we finite entities, who tend to rush to judgment (and often firstly toward the negative), are inclined more often than not to base our interpretations of other states, situations, and standards by our own--in this case, infinity.

Now, infinity is not a quantity, but a characteristic of quantity--namely, limitliness. Mathematicians have found that numerous sets of numbers may possess this characteristic. Further, you can use the number of them as values within a mathematical expression to arrive at a result.

Mathematicians have shown how zero is an infinite set of naughts. It represents nonexistence. Nothing can be added to, subtracted from, or multiplied or divided by something nonexistent.

Pi and e are found to contain an infinite number of digits. The first determines the ratio of the circumference to the diameter of every circular form in the Universe. The second is critical to all logarithms in the Cosmos.

Turns out, further, an infinite set of infinite numbers exist. We don't yet know why so.

It doesn't make infinity, as Mr. Oz insinuates, "absurd," as in silly or ridiculous. Instead, infinity fills us with endless curiosity and ever reduces us to a state of Awe.

The more we explore it, the more we will learn about the Universe we inhabit--and, indeed, about Existence itself.
