«The infinite! No other question has ever moved so profoundly the spirit of man,» said David Hilbert, one of the most influential mathematicians of the 19th century. A subject extensively studied by philosophers, mathematicians, and more recently, physicists and cosmologists, infinity still stands as an enigma of the intellectual world. Thinkers clash over questions such as: Does infinity exist? Can it be found in the physical world? What types of infinity are there? Through an interdisciplinary discussion with some of the world's leading thinkers, this program will delve into the many facets of infinity and address some of the deepest questions and controversies that mention of the infinite continues to inspire.Subscribe to our YouTube Channel for all the latest from WSF.Visit our Website: Like us on Facebook:…Follow us on twitter: PARTICIPANTS: Raphael Bousso, Philip Clayton, Steven Strogatz, W.

be that there was no beginning to the Universe. It may be that there is no

end to the Universe. It may be that there is no largest thing, that there

may be no smallest thing. It may be that there is no limit to scale (IE

planet, solar system, galaxy, galaxy clusters, super clusters, etc.) It may

be there are structures to the Universe that are so large in scale that we

cannot «see» them.

It may be that there is no smallest thing, that we are merely limited in

our observation tools and techniques. Every time we think we've reached the

smallest constituent parts of reality, we discover even smaller things (IE

Cells, nuclei, molecules, atoms, protons, quarks, etc., etc., et cetera...

infinite rooms, but ALSO INFINTE GUESTS, there are no rooms left for the

new guests to occupy. There will only be rooms left for the new guests if

there are infinte rooms but a finite number of guests.

Hebrew Bible. So was FINITE — the universe had a 'IN THE BEGINNING'. There

are no earlier recording of these two concepts.

infinity, you don't have the right to try and explain it.

space never need universe! Definitely space came first! WHATEVER CAME

FIRST IS INFINITE! WHATEVER CAME 2nd IS FINITE! SPACE INSIDE THE FINITE

UNIVERSE AND SPACE OUTSIDE THE FINITE UNIVERSE NEVER SAME!

then space is endless! Then at one stage god will look like an atom compare

to the endless infinite space. What came first? Almighty Creator, Space or

Universe? Universe need empty space but empty space never need a universe!

OBVIOUSLY empty space came first! IF ALMIGHTY CREATOR CAME FIRST THEN HE IS

THE lord of ENDLESS ∞! — What ever came first is infinite!

★ THE LORD OF ENDLESS INFINITE!

★ THE LORD OF ENDLESS SPACE!

★ THE LORD OF ENDLESS LIGHT!

★ THE LORD OF ENDLESS ATOM!

★ THE LORD OF ALL MESSENGERS! ALLAH

Infinity is a good example of that*. We know it has to be true, but we will

never be able to understand it. The mind can only understand things with

boundaries; it lives in that world only. For the 1st time in history the *ultimate

Truth of Life* has been revealed, it explains the big picture of life in

every facet, the nature of everything. Every important subject concerning

life comes across. Google *TruthContest click on the earth icon and read
