# Random Musings-Part 25- Infinity and Zero

**Nithin Sridhar**

Infinity is a Universal set. All that exists, whole existence is denoted by Infinity. Now, when we use numbers like 2 or 6 they refer to a group/set of finite objects derived from the Infinite set.

Hence, number 6 denotes, a single set/group containing 6 objects. When it is required to further divide this set/group into two groups, then 6 is divided by two giving answer 3 which is the number of objects in each new group formed.

I.e. 6/2=3 means, when a set containing 6 objects is divided into two sets/groups, then each group will have 3 objects.

Now consider, 6/0, it means a set containing 6 objects is divided into “zero” groups. Zero groups means, “No groups”. In other words, the limitation of grouping is being removed. Hence, when from a group/set containing 6 objects, the limitation of grouping is removed (i.e. divided by 0), then it means Infinity alone remains (as the finiteness in form of grouping has been removed).

Hence, for 1/0 or 2/0 or 6/0 or even 10000/0, the answer is “Infinity”.

Because any finite number denotes a set of finite entities derived from Universal/Infinite Set. And hence, when such a set of finite entities is divided by zero i.e. their finiteness or grouping is removed, Infinite alone remains.

Hence, Infinity denotes Brahman and Zero denotes Maya. Maya means “That which does not exist” from Absolute/Brahman’s standpoint. Hence, denoted by Zero. Hence, we can conclude that Brahman is Infinity and Maya is Zero. And when Brahman is associated with Maya i.e. Infinity X Zero, the result derived would be all possible set of finite entities.

Only an Adwaitin will write such illogical analogies from Math. That is because Adwaita can’t be proved neither logically nor theistically. Well, at any rate, for your kind information, the forms ∞/∞, ∞*0, 0/0, ∞^0 are ALL called indeterminate forms. So, long and short, we can’t answer the question of what ∞*0 evaluates to.
