**Expansion of one-dimensional Mind Set**

Infinite – unlimited or unmeasurable; indefinitely or exceedingly great Finite – having bounds or limits; measurable; capable of being completely counted; not infinite or infinitesimal; not zero Feb 16, 2013

**Duality (relativity, opposites) – Yin versus Yang**

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) Feb 16, 2013 43

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, 2013

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, 2013
