Then you are measuring the distance between two points on the line. The problem is, you cannot reach the first point because it takes forever to reach it. The only way you can reach it is if you have a point before it to compare it to. But with an infinite line, it would have taken an infinite(or in other words, you will never reach the point) amount of time to reach any point.

And whenever you start somewhere on the line, there will always be time before it, since it's infinite, no matter where you start. Just remember that it's impossible to reach infinite because it literally means never ending. So explain how you can reach an event if it takes an infinite(never ending) amount of time to reach it.
