Is there any tangible thing in our universe that is actually infinite or there exists an infinite quantity of?

>infinite quantity
Not how infinity works. Quantity is a property of finiteness. But yes, if finiteness exists, so must the infinite.

I don't think so

How about the whole universe, for starters?

>But yes, if finiteness exists, so must the infinite
Utter nonsense. I cam easily imagine a system where they are finite objects and nothing that is "infinite". What OP clearly meant was "does anything in universe qualify as infinite." To which the answer is no. Nothing is actually infinite, as far as we can tell.

>>10064437
I like the example of 'true arithmetic' in which one can do everything that concerns addition and multiplication of integers, and which is a complete and consistent system.

That's neat but what does this have to do with my post
>>
>>10064446
That is bullshit. Even a brainlet knows that true arithmetic requires infinitely many axioms. You are an idiot.
>>
>>10064447
Is this how Sci keeps its overall IQ above 100?

Imagination is infinite.
>>
>>10064457
That's not possible, if imagination has a tie to life then imagination is limited by the time of a lifespan. So not truly infinite.
>>
>>10064463
Time is infinite.

Yes it is.

Not him but even if it that doesn't matter since life is just a portion of time...

This, there's nothing that could logically limit any quantity

How is a finite thing bounded?
Science is just religion of a new era pulling the same slick con on the ignorant to drain them of their money. They even have the own flat earth at the edge of the universe where it stops. Like all religions, the retards actually believe carbon credits and other forms of taxation will fix the problem while their prophets like NDT are getting kick backs for sharing their lies. Wake up my sheeple, the shit is infinite. Your best laws, those of traffic, barely cover their purpose even while wholly disregarding social contracts.
Remember every affirmation of man made climate change is like screaming from the roof tops "Al Gore was right."
Clearly and irrevocably, something doesn't fucking add up.

>>10064393
Two mirrors facing each other. The reflection goes on for infinity in either direction. This is the only well known instance of a “tangible” proof of infinity
>>
>>10064499
What is time a portion of?
>>
>>10064499
no its not, ageing and limited life spans are an evolutionary myth. People only die when they give up at life, some people who appreciate life live to be 120 yrs plus, and there's no reason they couldn't go longer.

>>10064524
Very good question, if time had ever existed, there nothing to suggest that it couldn't exist again. If time had ever stopped and then started again, there would be no time between those instances, therefore time IS infinite.

why the homophobia?

guys i havrn't even taken calculus and i know more than you. there is an infinite number if divisiobs to any given unit, just as pi is a number of infinite precision.
>>
>>10064393
Infinity is kind of scam and imaginary property. I guess it doesn't apply in "reality" sphere.
>>
>>10064523
100% reflective mirrors and non light degrading space does not exist, you know? In reality.

>>10064554
Divisions of pi are not tangible.
>>
>>10064393
Maybe if we had some irrational line here(going finite space, having infinite distance) in universe, it's distance would be infinite.

Number of possible positions of particle is maybe on of them.
>>
>>10064393
Actually motion you can do on a mobius's stripe surface in one direction is quite not exactly finite.
>>
>>10064554
this is correct
>>10064561
intangible numbers are literally just numbers that, if you continued to calculate more significant digits of a number, there would always be more numbers to reveal.

>>10064393
What could possibly be outside of space? There must be infinite space

I have lived a long and fulfilling life as a cubic curve in $\mathbb{A}^5(\mathbb{F}_9)$, and I don't regret any of it. Of course $9^5$ points may not seem much, but it's cozy and familiar. It's home.

Yes, imagination is truly infinite. My life would be a boring elegy of sameness otherwise. I've imagined beings of degree four, five and even six, living in seven dimensional realities of characteristic 13. I've even imagine a world, similar to mine, but where there are points $P=(P_1,P_2,P_3,P_4,P_5)$ such that [eqn]\frac{P_j^{27}-P_j}{P_j^9-P_j}=0[/eqn] for at least some j. Or all j's. Talk about crazy!
