41 Finite – having bounds or limits; measurable; capable of being completely counted; not infinite or infinitesimal; not zero Infinite – unlimited or unmeasurable; indefinitely or exceedingly great Expansion of one-dimensional Mind Set Feb 16,

42 Thinking Boxes Feb 16,

43 Finite vs. Infinite (measurement) Male vs. Female (sexually reproductive species) Black vs. White (abstractions) Living vs. Death (life) North vs. South (polarity) Positive vs. Negative pole (polarity) Good vs. Evil (survival advantages) Heaven vs. Hell (spirituality) Yes vs. No (Choice) Duality (relativity, opposites) – Yin versus Yang Feb 16,

44 Mathematic Logic Finite = Measurable = unit Infinite = immeasurable = no unit Introduce additional units to measure large numbers, the immeasurable becomes measurable break through duality (finite and infinite are opposites by definition) Opposites are product of small mindset X is inside the box, Y is outside the box, therefore they are opposites. No box, no opposites (think outside box) The usefulness of very big and very small numbers are illustrated by the Macro-micro view power point. Feb 16,

45 Take Home Messages Infinity is a concept founded on within- the-box thinking (limited thinking mode). “Finite” and “infinite” are not opposite and not mutually exclusive terms; they are arbitrary concepts that depends on how far the mind is opened; they are relative. Abstract concepts such as infinity (a qualifier) can be quantified by introducing new units of measurement. Feb 16,
