This Crap Is Not Even Wrong
In reponse to my recent series on motion, people (mostly annoyingly boring mathematicians, ha ha) write to tell me that I am wrong to deny continuity (infinite divisibility) just because it leads to an infinite regress. They tell me that there is nothing wrong with infinity and that it is possible to traverse a continuous distance in finite time because, as you do (assume the thing that must be proved is correct and hope the other guy did not notice: priceless), the remaining time and distance diminish (they always forget to add, forever and ever, at the end). As Wolfgang Pauli would say, this crap (emphasis mine) is not even wrong. In fact, any argument in favor of infinity is stupid to the extreme, that is, its fallacy approaches infinity (pun intended). I am experiencing a Zatoichi vision as I write (for context, see Physics: The Problem With Motion, Part I) but please read on.
Infinite (Almost) Stupidity
If one believes in infinity, the fallacy of one’s stupidity approaches infinity because, if infinity existed, anything and everything would be infinitely big compared to the infinitely small. But, wait, that's not all of it. Anything and everything would be infinitely small compared to the infinitely big. So there you have it. Infinity is a system in which everything is infinitely big and infinitely small at the same time.
Have an infinitely great weekend.
