## Infinity exists regardless of mankind's ability to conceptualize it.

Thought experiment:

Let's say we figuratively put everything in existence into a box. In order for that box to take shape as a 6 sided construct, we have essentially created boundaries to what is inside the box and what is outside the box.

What is outside the box is the continuation of infinity whether it be infinite solid, space or matter interspersed with space.

Infinity therefore cannot be bounded and cannot be measured. No limit exists as well as no point of origin. Infinity has always been infinite.

Now due to the universal truth that is infinity and I say that to mean that we can always trust infinity to be the quality of infinite, we can then know that infinity is a quality that can be applicable to an infinite number of qualities.

Infinitely large

Infinitely small

Infinite time

Infinite space

Infinite matter

Infinite levels of intelligence or life forms

Infinite forms of energy

On and on because infinity has room for everything.

Infinity has its concept and function in mathematics, but I think infinity proves itself to exist in the physical realm as well.

If infinity is limited, then educate me on the word that is that which is beyond infinity. If this is so, then our definition of infinity is incorrect.

Thank you

In mathematics, we can always add one to any number, and therefore math demands infinity. But mathematics can not define reality, only attempt to describe it - check out Goodell's Incompleteness Theorem.

Therefore, it is impossible to say with certainty whether infinity lies outside in the physical world - which is to say there is always an infinity of uncertainty. ( I'll catch you yet, Schrodinger's cat!)

Infinite uncertainty leads to absurdity - which may be the word beyond infinity that I believe for which you were looking. Beyond infinity lies absurdity! ;-)
