# Homework Help: Can we have infinite energy?

1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

The question I have is, is can we have infinite energy?

3. The attempt at a solution

It seems that our perception of time is inter-related to the loss of energy and order over time. If infinite regress were true when that means infinite energy right?

So can we have infinite energy? Is there infinite regress? Can we even have infinite energy?

I think the idea of infinite energy is not logical... AND we don't have infinity mass even a black hole has finite mass >>>> ( the equivalence of mass and energy)

Technically Yes, really no

E=mc^2
If mass was infinite then Energy would be infinite
because m = E/c^2 and energy would be directly proportional.

because anything times infinity is obviously infinity

But there is nothing that has infinite mass, therefore as far as we know there cannot be infinite energy.
