Yanniru sometimes writes interesting and
substantive posts on this forum!

All physical processes apparently are finite if
by "infinite" we mean n+1 where n is the sum of the previous n+1. But if by "infinite" we mean
"uncountability" then there may be a physical process with an "infinity"
at an "infinitesimal point" which is not zero
but has been considered zero as a "placeholder,"
as Stormcrow would say.

Strawberries,
