For as long as I can remember I have loved the infinity symbol. The mathematics, science, philosophy, simplicity and beauty of a symbol. One small equation that can fumble your thoughts.
Endless, limitless, boundless, immeasurable, eternal, unfathomable, beyond. Even the words are infinite.
Philosophically Infinity is like the soul, like the mind. Universally undiscovered or unattainable? The closer we look, the gateway shows a huge landscape of possibilities that are too large for our minds. Too large for our bodies.
Our souls are the closest we get to Infinity. A puzzle for the mind, where does it begin? But wait, what is it? What are we looking for? What are the terms? What are the questions?
Where does it begin? But wait, what is it? What are we looking for? What are the terms? What are the questions???
“To see the world in a grain of sand and a heaven in a wild flower, hold infinity in the palm of your hand and create eternity in an hour” -William Blake
“I can’t help it, the idea of infinity tortures me” -Alfred de Musset
Close your eyes , enreal.
Aren’t you there ?
(((akash))) I am now… thank you akash
Beautiful Post. Infinity is so infinate – so hard to fathom. Akash made an incredible discovery . . wow! Peace, Light and Love, CordieB.
(((Cordie))) it is hard to fathom… but it is fun to try. Something about infinity makes life have purpose… although we may be small, the probability is even smaller… and when you turn infinity to our minds… it recognizes it… on some level identifies with such a conceptual enigma…
infinity may be far too great for me to understand, but I can find infinity inside me, a convenient place to explore.
Thank you for this post
(((rainer))) indeed… i believe it is everywhere and nowhere… it is within and without space… rainer, you see the power it can hold…
Ah, infinity – a place where only the mind could see and the soul, fathom the beauty of it and yet hushed by its wonders.
(((glaize))) loved these words… the hold infinite beauty and spirit
where do your words begin?
where do they end?
woven into infinity..
I know the answer..
(((Sorrow))) 😀 😀 😀 our words end where they begin… in our mind, the holder of an infinite eternity
Another concept difficult for the human mind to comprehend. It highlights our limitations whilst showcasing the human ability to reach for the unknown.
So much we take for granted these days, but who would look at the night sky and realise that those stars are actually huge suns. Our everyday perception can’t reach that far. But, somewhere in our souls, we perceive the infinite…
We are truly remarkable creatures… infinitely so
Lovely post Enreal – thankyou.
(((Zenuria))) Lovely comment… truly beautiful thoughts and words, thank you for sharing them here
Infinity is not like the soul, as there is no soul. A human being is just an arrangement of cells. Everything about us is determined by chemicals and neurosignals within our brains. Our very essences are just neuroscience.
(((Write ME free))) simple enough… for you… you have stated your beliefs, I have stated mine… peace goes to your cells and neuroscience…
The only way I can even begin to ‘understanding’ infinity is by this:
It is an eternal NOW moment…just a massive string of neverending NOWS
Just like you!
(((grace))) and like you!!!! great conceptual thought!
