Hyperinfinte or transinfinite

  1. Apr 18, 2010 #1
    Is there a simple analogy or pictorial representation of that which is beyond infinity?

    I have already heard of levels of infinity, and that only mixes complexity with infinity.

    I was hoping someone out there could describe what could potentially lie beyond an infinite

    physical space or aether, however you want to describe it.

    Are you asking a math question or a physics question? The answers would be quite different.

    And while we're at it, what is it about - infinity having no end and thus there not being anything "beyond" it - that is confusing you?

    Are you asking about different size of infinity, as in set theory? The cardinality of the reals vs. the cardinality of the integers?
