This idea has been bothering me for a while, it started when I thought that if there was an infinite amount of space inside of an inch. ( or even any measurement in the physical world ) Then I thought that maybe that's not a fair argument on the basis that quantum theory says planks length "h" could be considered the smallest measurement/moment. Then I thought about circles and where this idea becomes relevant. Honestly a circle doesn't have 360° that's just what the Sumerians gave the circle to make it easier to work with. By definition a circle is infinitely symmetrical giving it an infinite amount of degrees.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

We all know that infinity is a really big storm when trying to give it an actual definition, but when using a circle even when you have no connection to the real world is always finite yet infinite at the same time. We all know that no matter what time or where you are in the universe a circle with a diameter of 1 will be the same ALWAYS. Now say this circle is devised by two, would that be equal to deviding an infinite in half? There would still be as many points on either side of the circle (being infinite) but all together there are twice as many while still equal to infinity. Any insight or even ideas towards what could explain this would be much appreciated.
