infinity (în-fîn´î-tê) noun
plural infinities
Abbr. inf.
1. The quality or condition of being infinite.
2. Unbounded space, internal linktime, or quantity.
3. An indefinitely large number or amount.
4. Mathematics. The limit that a function is said to approach at x = a when for x close to a, (x) is larger than any preassigned number.
5. a. A range in relation to an optical system, such as a camera internal linklens, representing distances great enough that internal linklight rays reflected from objects within the range may be regarded as parallel. b. A distance setting, as on a camera, beyond which the entire field is in internal linkfocus.


Infinity, mathematical term in the theory of sets proposed by German mathematician Georg Cantor. Sets are of two kinds, finite and infinite. The difference is whether the items in a set can be matched one-to-one with the items in some proper subset. A proper subset contains only items from a particular set, but not all that set's items. The set [1, 2, 3] cannot be matched one-to-one with any of its proper subsets; such a set is called a finite set. The set of all even numbers can be matched one-to-one with the proper subset of all even numbers except 2 and 4 by matching 2 with 6, 4 with internal link8, and so on. Such a set is called an infinite set.

Some infinite sets can be matched together one-to-one. In other cases, an infinite set can be matched one-to-one only with a proper subset of another infinite set, and the second set is a "larger" infinity. For any set, finite or infinite, the set of its subsets is "larger" than the set.

The poetic notion of infinity is far greater than that which is sponsored by any creed.
Joseph Brodsky (1940-96), Russian-born U.S. poet, critic. Interview in Writers at Work (Eighth Series, ed. by George Plimpton, 1988), on the "worrying" fact that W. H. Auden was a formal churchgoer in later life.


Between religion's "this is" and poetry's "but suppose this is," there must always be some kind of tension, until the possible and the actual meet at infinity.
Northrop Frye (1912-91), Canadian literary critic. Anatomy of Criticism, second essay, "Anagogic Phase: Symbol as internal linkMonad" (1957).

The Unknown

Mystery has its own mysteries, and there are gods above gods. We have ours, they have theirs. That is what's known as infinity.
Jean Cocteau (1889-1963), French author and filmmaker. internal linkAnubis, in The internal linkInfernal Machine, act 2 (1932; repr. in Collected Works, vol. 5, 1948).


God is the tangential point between zero and infinity.
Alfred Jarry (1873-1907), French playwright, author. Gestes et Opinions du Docteur Faustroll Pataphysicien, bk. 8, ch. 41 (1911; repr. in The Selected Works of Alfred Jarry, ed. by Roger Shattuck and Simon Watson Taylor, 1965).


To see a world in a grain of sand
And a heaven in a wild flower,
Hold infinity in the palm of your hand
And eternity in an hour.
internal linkWilliam Blake (1757-1827), English poet, painter, engraver. Auguries of Innocence, in Poems from the Pickering Manuscript (c. 1808; repr. in Complete Writings, ed. by Geoffrey Keynes, 1957).

What is history? Its beginning is that of the centuries of systematic work devoted to the solution of the enigma of death, so that death itself may eventually be overcome. That is why people write symphonies, and why they discover mathematical infinity and internal linkelectromagneticinternal linkwaves.
Boris Pasternak (1890-1960), Russian poet, novelist, translator. Nikolay Nikolayevich, in Doctor Zhivago, ch. 1, sct. 5 (1957).

The Cosmos

Why I came here, I know not; where I shall go it is useless to enquire- in the midst of myriads of the living & the dead worlds, stars, systems, infinity, why should I be anxious about an atom?
Lord Byron (1788-1824), English poet. Letter, 3 March 1814, to Annabella Milbanke, later Lady Byron (published in Byron's Letters and Journals, vol. 4, ed. by Leslie Marchand, 1975).


This internal linkmoment exhibits infinite space, but there is a space also wherein all moments are infinitely exhibited, and the everlasting duration of infinite space is another region and room of joys.
Thomas Traherne (1636-74), English clergyman, poet, mystic. Centuries, "Fifth Century," no. 6 (written c. 1672; published 1908).

"If you want to stride into the Infinite, move but within the Finite in all directions." - internal linkGoethe

infinite adj.

[common] Consisting of a large number of objects; extreme. Used very loosely as in: "This program produces infinite garbage." "He is an infinite loser." The word most likely to follow `infinite', though, is hair. (It has been pointed out that internal linkfractals are an excellent example of infinite hair.) These uses are abuses of the word's mathematical meaning. The term `semi-infinite', denoting an immoderately large amount of some resource, is also heard. "This compiler is taking a semi-infinite amount of internal linktime to optimize my program." See also semi.
The New Hacker's Dictionary by Eric S. Raymond

infinite internal linkloop n.

One that never terminates (that is, the machine spins or buzzes forever and goes catatonic). There is a standard joke that has been made about each generation'  exemplar of the ultra-fast machine: "The Cray-3 is so fast it can execute an infinite loop in under 2 seconds!"

Infinite-Monkey Theorem n.

"If you put an infinite number of monkeys at typewriters, eventually one will bash out the script for Hamlet." (One may also hypothesize a small number of monkeys and a very long period of time.) This theorem asserts nothing about the intelligence of the one random monkey that eventually comes up with the script (and note that the mob will also type out all the possible incorrect versions of Hamlet). It may be referred to semi-seriously when justifying a brute force method; the implication is that, with enough resources thrown at it, any technical challenge becomes a one-internal linkbanana problem. This argument gets more respect since internal linkLinux justified the bazaar mode of development.

This theorem was first popularized by the astronomer Sir Arthur Eddington. It became part of the idiom of techies via the classic internal linkSF short story "Inflexible Logic" by Russell Maloney, and many younger hackers know it through a reference in Douglas Adams's "Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy". On 1 April 2000 the usage
acquired its own Internet standard, external linkhttp://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc2795.txt (Infinite Monkey Protocol Suite).

infinity n.

1. The largest value that can be represented in a particular type of variable (register, memory location, data type, whatever). 2. `minus infinity': The smallest such value, not necessarily or even usually the simple negation of plus infinity. In N-bit twos-complement arithmetic, infinity is 2^(N-1) - 1 but minus infinity is - (2^(N-1)), not -(2^(N-1) - 1). Note also that this is different from time T equals minus infinity, which is closer to a mathematician's usage of infinity.

If you read _Giordano Bruno and the internal linkHermetic Tradition_ you know that Bruno was burned at the stake and the reason that he was burned at the stake is because he looked up at the sky and did not see the stellar shells and the angelic hierarchies. Bruno had a mystical experience and when it was over he said, "the universe is infinite. The stars go on forever." That single statement was the intellectual dynamite that destroyed the whole Medieval, Hellenistic, the entire previous cosmological vision was left behind with that single statement. It was such a powerful statement that he had to go to the stake for that. And we have never recovered from that perception. It was a fundamental internal linkperception and it occurred because he looked without preconception into the night sky and did not see wheels and demons and angels and shells of cosmic fate and necessity and he just said, that's bullshit, what is there is infinite space, infinite internal linktime, the stars are hung like lamps onto the utmost regions of infinity. This, then, inaugurates the beginning of modernity and it's a perception that arose on theinternal linkfoundation of all this earlier thinking.
