Time To Define "infinity"?

How do you define "infinity"?

Even in mathematics, "infinity" seems to be associated with "no limit on number size"; and (?) since "number size" might be regarded from a certain perspective as "number label"; it follows perhaps that "unlimited choice" is what infinity is about: e.g. choose any number from 1 to infinity.

A limited choice is not an infinite number of choices; but the "choice" phenomenon itself is unlimited? That is, to choose between two, is to have no more limits on just having one option.

Did you follow my explanation of Dr. Dick's equations 1.1 and 1.2, which shows the origin and role of his "unknown data"?
