## What is infinite theory?

Among the axioms of Zermelo–Fraenkel set theory, on which most of modern mathematics can be developed, is the axiom of infinity, which **guarantees the existence of infinite sets**.

## What does an infinite universe imply?

An infinite universe (unbounded metric space) means that **there are points arbitrarily far apart**: for any distance d, there are points that are of a distance at least d apart. A finite universe is a bounded metric space, where there is some distance d such that all points are within distance d of each other.

## How do we know the universe in infinite?

We can **take images from this early time to understand the universe’s shape (or geometry) on the largest scale**. Knowing this is important to knowing whether the universe is infinite or finite. Measurements taken by satellites have pointed to the universe having a flat geometry.

## Is infinity a natural number?

**The set of natural numbers is infinite**.

## Who defined infinity?

The mathematical symbol infinity ” ∞” was discovered by the English mathematician **John Wallis** in 1657. There are three different types of infinity, namely: mathematical, physical, and metaphysical.

## What is an infinite number?

Infinity is not a real number, it is an idea. **An idea of something without an end**. Infinity cannot be measured. Even these faraway galaxies can’t compete with infinity.

## Is the universe infinite in all directions?

As far as we can tell, there is no edge to the universe. **Space spreads out infinitely in all directions**. Furthermore, galaxies fill all of the space through-out the entire infinite universe. This conclusion is reached by logically combining two observations.

## Is time finite or infinite?

As a universe, a vast collection of animate and inanimate objects, **time is infinite**. Even if there was a beginning, and there might be a big bang end, it won’t really be an end. The energy left behind will become something else; the end will be a beginning.

## Is the universe infinite in age?

The observable universe is still huge, but it has limits. That’s because we know **the universe isn’t infinitely old** — we know the Big Bang occurred some 13.8 billion years ago. That means that light has had “only” 13.8 billion years to travel.

## Who created infinity?

mathematician John Wallis

infinity, the concept of something that is unlimited, endless, without bound. The common symbol for infinity, ∞, was invented by the English mathematician **John Wallis** in 1655. Three main types of infinity may be distinguished: the mathematical, the physical, and the metaphysical.

## Do we need infinity?

It is important to take special note that **infinity is not a number; rather, it exists only as an abstract concept**. Attempting to treat infinity as a number, without special care, can lead to a number of paradoxes. Infinity is not a number!

## What can be infinite?

**Examples of Infinity**

- The sequence of natural numbers is infinite. …
- A line or even a line segment consists of infinite points.
- Similarly, a circle consists of infinite points.
- The number pi (π) goes on forever. …
- Certain fractions are finite, but they are infinite when written as decimal numbers.

## What is an example of a infinite number?

If any set is endless from start or end or both sides having continuity then we can say that set is infinite. For example, **the set of whole numbers, W = {0, 1, 2, 3, ……..}** is an infinite set as the number of elements is infinite. The set of real numbers is an example of uncountable infinite sets.

## Is there a number past infinity?

Beyond the infinity known as **ℵ _{0}** (the cardinality of the natural numbers) there is ℵ

_{1}(which is larger) … ℵ

_{2}(which is larger still) … and, in fact, an infinite variety of different infinities.

## Is zillion a number?

**Zillion sounds like an actual number** because of its similarity to billion, million, and trillion, and it is modeled on these real numerical values. However, like its cousin jillion, zillion is an informal way to talk about a number that’s enormous but indefinite.
