  • Infinity to the Infinite Power

    There really doesn't need to be much description here, except for the question - what is it? I tried googling it and didn't really get any good answers.

    All I know is that it is not infinity, which is strange, because infinity x infinity is still infinity.

    My first guess would be that it's still just infinity... because infinity itself is not a number, it's a concept. But since that's apparently not a 'correct' answer... I don't know

      Like the universe is endless, until it starts to run into it self again or, until it getting smaller and ends with a big bang.

      What is behind the universe, and how come that is even bigger? If there isn't anything, then what is keeping it in place.

        I thought it was infinity, but my algebra teacher told me it's not.. He'll tell us what in a few days, but I'm curious now.

          0 ?

          Big bang, exsistance , big crunch

            Well, when he does tell you, tell us

              the answer is infinity.

                It would be something like second infinity. There are different "sizes" of infinity.

                  I don't think that there's an actual solution to that "equation..."

                      I don't remember the specific rules with infinity, but I'm not 100% sure you can say infinity * infinity = infinity. I believe it might be undefined. What's (infinity - 1)? What's (infinity - 1)^2 = infinity * infinity - 2 * infinity + 1?

                      IIRC, you can't work with infinity, period... unless you work with limits.

                      So I'm going to say infinity^infinity = undefined.

                        Infinity is just a term to describe that which is not finite

                        It can't be given a scalar value.

                          And then it would be hardly infinity

                            Inertia enables the universe to grow since the variable of Inertia from the big bang was so high, it compounds itself over time. The growth of the variable is slowed down a bit by gravitrons from various sources.

                              Well, I've got the answer now. It's not really concrete, but the answer is that it's bigger than infinity.
