The infinity rule states that a theorum (infinity) is a never ending number. eg. if you state 1/3 as a decimal then the number is on the decimal scale .33333 recurring. If you times this number by three you get .9999999. So does this mean that 3 * 1/3 = 3/3 which shown by this is .999999? not 1? eg. For time, for one second to change into 2 seconds, what has to occur? 1.1 must come before 2. But for 1.1 to occur, for that .1 you must have .11 and for that .11 you must have .111 and so on... by the definition of this then time should never move forward if infinity has no end, it will just keep the .11111's occuring to infinity. eg. If a man shoots a bullet that travels at 100m/s and a man 100m away to start with runs away from that bullet at a speed of 10m/s then by the state of the infinity rule the bullet should never hit him. After 1 second the bullet is in the position wheve the man was a second again but the man is ahead 10m in that 1 second as well. Then .1 seconds later the bullet is in the mans previous position and the man is ahead 1m... this will continue into infinity with the bullet never hitting him. But it does? Thankyou Robin Park
