Zero is a number (ish) but infinity isn't, they both represent different things entirely.
If infinity is everything containing zero, it doesn't become zero alone.

Zero is an amount. Infinity is the amount of futility to be found in considering this 'problem.

Good, a response that I can at least relate to, and anything that stops that crap swirling around in your head for a moment is a good thing for you too.

Begs the question. If infinity can equal zero as you have derived. What happens if it ever does equal zero?

I still believe that 'everything', infinity, tends toward zero. Before the so called 'big bang' the point in which the universe fell from originated as infinitesimally dense. Does density tend towards zero?


No I used set theory to show that the empty set exists within the infinite set. Within.

Everything does tend toward zero, it's called entropy.

Entropy is a fine word. Must admit had to google that one.

So is entropy similar to chaos theory?

I don't think so. Chaos theory is the study of systems that can have very different outcomes after making an almost insignificant alteration. The universe is surely in some sort of 'chaos theory' situation, but it doesn't link much to entropy.

Entropy is basically a measure of how many possible arrangements a system can take.

As the universe ages and cools down, there's less and less energy to allow for stuff, anything, to happen. And so the entropy slowly decreases to 1.
