For every number that exsists an opposite number. 100 is opposite to 1/100. We are told this exsists for all numbers except 0. Now everything in space has a pair wether is be Newtons third law, for every action there is and equal and opposite reaction, or wether its matter and anti-matter.
They say you cannot divide by 0 but i would say you can but the human mind cannot fully comprehend the answer, Infinity. We think we understand it but i don't think we do. Just as the childs arguement, infinity plus 1 we know this doesn't make sense and is not the true meaning of infinity, but we still think of infinity this way.
If you take a normal xy plane and divide it with an infinite number of lines with an infinite number of slopes How many regions will you have?

One could argue that you have an infinte number of regions while someone else could argue that because each region would only be as big as a single point you have 0 regions. They would both be correct.

Therefor Infinity = 0

Tell me what you think?
