Nothing vs. Infinity
Nothing and Infinity. Both are terms for concepts that keep me awake at night.

To truly dwell upon them is futility, methinks. But I do. I find the concept of "nothing" to be just as hard to conceive as "infinity".

Just a musing..... thoughts? Drinking Beverage

Edit: yup, I'm putting this here.

It is one's hold on identity that clouds conception.

But now I have come to believe that the whole world is an enigma, a harmless enigma that is made terrible by our own mad attempt to interpret it as though it had an underlying truth.

Who asked you? Tongue

You are correct, however, and that's my point. Does infinity exist?

RE: Nothing vs. Infinity
For nothing to even exist as a concept... makes it something... which then would invalidate the concept... or something

German porn is what keeps me awake at night but I don't go on making threads about it. Dodgy

Just kidding

I thought about it too, didn't come up with anything smart .
It's quite hard to fully grasp the concepts of infinity and nothing.

Do you have any easier questions? Smile

Meh. Just manipulate the symbols and make the maths work.

Hey, HoC! Put down that drink and get over here.

Yeah, but they'd go in the masturbation thread. Big Grin

I'm not sure but I have a bottle of captain morgan tattoo I'm willing to share. I'd rather get drunk and forget about the philosophical stuff tonight. Tongue

RE: Nothing vs. Infinity
It's my understanding that infinity is just shorthand for "a really big number."

Nothing must have existed at some point if it eventually turned into something. That means "nothing" is probably more like "something" than we have been led to believe...

Sorry honey, boss got back from vacay the other day and brought me some Kona coffee from the big island, good shit. I've been enjoying it with some cheap bourbon mixed in all day, and these are the questions that bug me when I'm buzzed. I'd bet some rum would go good with the Kona, I'm willing to share too, but what the hell will we talk about?
