# Infinity

**Infinity** goes on forever, and then some. As with swine flu, few people believe it to be real.

## What is infinity?

Infinity is generally thought of as the "endless number", despite such a number being logically unable to exist. Such fallacies are rife in its history, which began with a caveman wondering how long it would take for humanity to ever enjoy mornings. Some people believe that infinity is merely a hypothetical concept, used to represent that beyond mathematics's current understanding of numbers, although that is much less interesting. In general, infinity is a very confusing and pointless idea, and it isn't used for anything outside of extremely crude metaphors and numerical showboating.

## How big is infinity?

Infinity is of an infinite size. To compare it to another number, one would most likely have to compare the whole of the universe to a single atom, which implies that the universe is spatially limitless, although it is certainly not a proven theory that such an amount of matter could ever exist in the conceptual space we have granted certain existence. Ergo, infinity would be omnipresent in its only tangible incarnation, giving theorists scope for great assumptions on the scale of infinity as an *in*tangible number, and how such a broad concept's application is so finite to the field of mathematics only, when the number itself is *in*finite. That is to say, it's quite big.

## Who uses infinity?

Infinity is greatly used in mathematics and similar fields, which is slightly confusing considering it cannot exist. However, its place on the confusion/comprehension scale, squarely between pi and *i*, has lead it to become something of an asset in calculating useless applications purely for the sake of it. Although not directly related, the definition of infinity is connotated with such expressions as *"[this activity] is taking forever!"* and *"Car trips to [location] never end!"*. Such phrases are undoubtedly clichéd, but common nonetheless, and idealise infinity as a perfectly normal expression which is, quite appropriately, used to notify terrific dullness.

## What does infinity look like?

The most common imagery of infinity is the number eight (8) tipped on its side, as seen above. This is relative for a number of reasons, the predominant one being the sloppy description of such a massive idea and it being parallel to having a tipped over eight its symbol. Other mental images are conjured at the mention of infinity. The most resounding is an infinite amount of monkeys chained to an infinite amount of typewriters, for although the image is almost totally random, monkeys are funny. There is a final visual aid for infinity, which, all things considered, makes the most sense: a pale, starving mathematician hunched over a series of never-ending calculations in a dim room which the Mafia probably perform executions in.

## Can I have some pi?

No, you can't.
