No calculus involved - just logarithms and exponents.

Quote:DJTeddyBearI’m a little surprised you didn’t continue this till the exponent got too big for Excel - or became got expressed as scientific notation itself.

It gets to the point where 10^N spins has a value of 1 E(-1.18992232997077 E(N-2)).

Pedantic mode: I don't use Excel - I use LibreOffice.

Quote:WizardI believe space does.

If there’s a wall where space ends, then the question becomes: what’s behind it. Nothing is probably as abstract as infinity

Or it could be curved in a way that makes it finite.

Quote:WizardYou're welcome.

Funny how many paradoxes come up when it comes to infinity.

I still say infinity is more of a philosophical concept than a number and claim there is nothing in the physical universe that is infinite in nature.

I don't expect God or whatever to create a Heaven or whatever that no one will, ever, attain. How about a higher plane of thought? Who was it that said, "Some talk about what is, and, ask why, but, I talk about what isn't, and, ask, why not?" Maybe, a true love of numbers and music, life and soul, well, is what leads to a real and actual infinity. After all, we aren't here for someone else to "fill" us up.

Good point. It might be that you wrap around, like a sphere. This is not a topic I can take very far.

You could if you wanted to. There’s a neat explication if quantum mechanics that reduces it to higher order statistical mechanics. I’ll bet you are fluent enough with the latter that you could dive pretty far into the latter.Quote:WizardGood point. It might be that you wrap around, like a sphere.
