I’ve pondered my final project for awhile now and after changing my decision multiple times, I’ve landed on doing my project on the history of infinity. I won’t go into my notes on what this topic is due to my presentation explaining that but I will explain why I chose this topic. I’ve always loved the idea of infinity. As a child, I remember being asked what infinity + 1 would equal and thinking for days. Of course, infinity isn’t a real number so it cannot be added, subtracted, multiplied or divided by any real numbers but I remember this as being my first time I spent time on math when I didn’t need to. Infinity was taught to me as such a large and inconceivable number that it fell outside all logic math put together. This amazed me as a child and I’ll be honest, still amazes me today. To think that infinity cannot exist yet is talked about all the time is fascinating to me. I love thinking of infinity as zero’s counterpart in the sense that they are both numbers made outside of complete logic to help explain nothing and everything respectively.
