# 0 = 1

Lets assume, that we can have an equation that is equal to infinity: x <= infinity

We can then agree that obviously "infinity = infinity".
Now let us observe that if you were to add 1 to infinity, well, you'd still have infinity, since we're just dealing with an infinitly large number.

So now we're at "infinity = infinity + 1", which seems all well and good since we know infinity + 1 is still infinity.

Now, what if we were to subtract infinity from each side of that equation:

"infinity - infinity = infinity + 1 - infinity = 1"

Well congratulations, you've just proved that "0 = 1" we can now prove just about anything.

Thanks to /.

Nice try, but infinity plus 1 does not exist.

Because if you add 1 to infinity, the number you called infinity before, was not really infinity.

Problem solved…

> We can then agree that obviously “infinity = infinity”.

I learnt during my first semester that this is really nonsense.

#4

infinity is not specified

so infinity - infinity = infinity

but it is nice to read something like this between al the cdrw problems…lol

I know it’s been shown before here in other posts but it’s still quite nice :

i couldn’t have put it any better myself.

But have you only just realised!!!

if you think so…

then i will take care of your girls if you do not want them…

altogether now…1…2…3… aaaaaaawwwwww

lol

i think i would run like hell with more then 1 girl at home

Does life exist ?

No , life does not exist.

We can assume the amount of planets is so mind boggingly large , we could call it infinite

There are planets where no life is possible

If you devide a finite number with an infinte it reaches zero
(0.0000000etc)

So there is no life

you really must smoke some strong stuff…but i like the result

mr belvedere give your arse a rest and let your brain do some work. you talk a load of bs.

How could that not be disrespectful? Mr. Belvedere’s posts in this thread are intended as thought as a real mathematical proof, but as a thought excersice.

Disproof of Mr. Belvederes ‘theorys’:

Infinity is not a number, it is a concept. It is not included in the axiom of arithmetic, so you cannot perform operations like +, -, *, /, %, etc. on it. And for the second one, very large is not infinity, simple as that.

infinity is used for calculation…i do not know the english term for the calculations…but in dutch it is called

“integreren’ or ‘diferentieren’”

in this calculation the symbol of infinity is an 8 but then on his side (00…lol…something like this)

lim
f(x)
x->00

#15

And there’s also complex mathematics in where i^2 = -1

But it was indeed for fun … haven’t been smoking weird stuff lately And it was a nice difference than the usual cd stuff eh ?

More of these fun posts ?

remind me how less i remember from everything i learned at school

Re: 0=1

The 1st thing I thought of was a scene from “This Is Spinal Tap” the movie.

“My amp goes to 11.”
“How much louder is 11 than 10?”
“Well 1 of course”. “But my amp goes to 11.”

The amp really did go to 11.

a=b <—assume non-zero

a^2=ab

subtract b^2 from each side, and get

a^2-b^2=ab-b^2

then divide by a-b

a+b=b

but a=b, so we have

2b=b

and since we assumed b is nonzero, we have 2=1, subtracting the 1…

1=0
