Throughout history, the finite-infinite debate has been fraught with emotion between those who “believe” and those who do not. Those old debates are ignored here. How do we start with a clean slate, a tabula rasa? Are there simple concepts of infinity that defy a finite label? Some of the most advanced work to control the concept of the infinite is in physics, i.e. the work within renormalization and regularization. These highly-technical descriptions of infinity have yielded concepts with highly-specialized language. Although some of that work will be engaged, our goal is to explore alternatives to Newton’s absolutes of space and time.
Within our base-2 chart, this “point” particle falls within Notation 60. There are 60 doublings of the Planck scale numbers prior to reaching the size of a “point” particle. Denying this infinitesimal range seems a bit too sure that particles and waves are our fundamental building blocks with which to construct our universe. A key concept of this website is that the most simple sphere, a primordial sphere, is the most basic building block and that it immediately begins stacking and it is simple no longer.
