Just because infinity doesn’t behave like other numbers doesn’t make it “not a number”. Zero doesn’t behave like other numbers. Neither does the square root of minus 1 or pi (in different senses of course). If you can do maths with it, it’s a number. You can do maths with infinity (of a kind). Cantor showed the way…

Tue, 29 Apr 2014 20:33:00 +0000https://listverse.wordpress.com/?p=37040#comment-873663There are all sorts of subtle ways of using transfinite numbers which Cantor explored for the first time. It is possible to do maths with these concepts and whilst infinity (strictly there are many infinities, but for most purposes the first one will do) is not a normal number it is still a number of a kind to which extensions of arithmetic apply…

Tue, 01 Apr 2014 11:11:00 +0000https://listverse.wordpress.com/?p=37040#comment-858902long story short. infinity is the term for ‘never ending’. if something is infinite, it never runs out. If you were eating an infinite amount of marshmallows, you would be eating them forever (if you could, of course). Then again, infinite is not a number. It is a term. There is no number before infinity or after infinity. Therefore, infinity +1 does not exist. So the rightfull place for number one would be grahams number.

Fri, 21 Mar 2014 04:56:00 +0000https://listverse.wordpress.com/?p=37040#comment-852828This comment section needs facts. Infinity is a cardinality of a set, e.g. the set of natural numbers are countably infinite. Its cardinality is aleph null. The set of real numbers has cardinality aleph one, i.e. they are uncountably infinite.
