The Meaning of Infinity

It’s frustrating knowing something, but also knowing the answer falls on deaf ears. I may not be the brightest bulb in the box, but on this answer, I’m (99%) right, contrary to popular beliefs surrounding infinity. It’s the only way it can be. My reasoning is sound. Of course, I always reserve the right to be wrong, after all, I am merely a human being. Us human beings have a rich history of being embarrassingly wrong, 100% of the time, when it comes to understanding the fundamentals of the universe. It usually takes one stubborn human being more than a lifetime to break through the barriers of popular consensus beliefs and false reasoning. I’ve been doing this for 40+ years, and I have far fewer years in front of me than I do behind me. Time is running out for me, and I can only hope someone gets it, and can take this to the proper level of investigation. It’s pretty fucking simple honestly, as it should be. A fundamental understanding requires fundamental knowledge, like 1+1=2. Simplicity is the biggest challenge for me, because no one seems to like simple. They want an elaborate formula painstakingly derived after 10 years of schooling coming from a PhD and hundreds of published peer reviewed scientific papers. They want observations and evidence using the latest $30 billion tool, after trillions of dollars in grants to research it. They want the next e=mc². There is no patience or room for outsiders in this perpetual game.

Sorry, but from what I can see, science has little to do with discovery these days. It’s about turning nature into a usable product for resale. It’s also about fame and fortune and power. As the old adage goes, knowledge is power. The holy grail of science these days is fusion technology, because an endless supply of clean energy is the paramount of fame, fortune, and power. It will make a trillionaire out of someone, along with a Nobel prize, and absolute power over the supply of energy. That name will be immortalized in the annals of human history. Whatever country controls it will be a super power beyond comprehension. Whoever controls it wins the world over. I suppose control over gravity would be equal in stature.

I don’t mean to be so damn cynical, but I’m a staunch realist and a hardened pragmatist. I call bullshit when I see it. Actual science is kind of bullshit these days. It’s mostly about fame, money, and power, not the…
