    Conceptually, yes.
    Realistically, no.

    Mathematically, yes infinity exists. Yet some aspects of infinity are hard to imagine because they go beyond what we are capable of perceiving and experiencing. Just because its difficult to wrap our minds around it does not mean it can't exist.

    I agree. If 1 exists, and 1 includes infinite fractions, then infinity exists.

    Either it does or the universe came out of nothingness, which is just as cool.

    Infinity is nothingness....just the opposite way around.

    Which is why it's just a system, and since it's a system which was developed by humans (and since humans aren't even capable of conceptualizing systems that reflect reality) then it only exists until someone decides that it doesn't...and builds another system to incorporate that idea.

    The only conceptual systems that can be assessed to reflect reality would have to have a source which is entirely independent of us. Some would say god....the answer is 42.

    i like that. Because in calculus there is the use of real and imaginary numbers. it can be real. just not in this time place or dimention

    I understand the first part because that was in my first post on this thread but the rest baffles me. Can you elaborate? sounds like you are talking about the matrix

    Don't knock the matrix lol

    Reality as it is experienced by humans is clouded from actual reality due to the limitations of our senses. For humans to ever achieve actual reality, we would have to be able to experience a total reality as determined by a source that doesn't have these limitations. I'm of the opinion that this reality exists and that one day we will be able to prove it.

    The matrix is about lifting the 'reality veil' that a lot of us have...and the super computer is about allowing the computer to dictate what actual reality actually is ( and thus telling us).

    But thats tangentinial.

    Related back to my post...the nature of existence will be independent of a human determined thought system (even a consistent one) due to these inherent limitations. Thus claiming that infinity does exist is akin to thinking that humans have the capacity to conceptualize reality in the first place. I don't think we do...and seeing as infinity is nothing more than a thought system developed entirely by us...to claim that it actually exists is presumptuous.
