There is no known upper bound to how hot something can be, but there does come a point where things are so hot that our understanding of physics breaks down.

Even though somethinng has no defined limit, that does not mean infinity.

How fast can you type?

Do you know the definition of "temperature", and subsequently, the concept of "heat"?

The answer is that there's no limit to how high of a temperature you can reach provided you have the required energy and means of reaching that temperature.

You were already given the answer by others in this thread. My question to you was to judge what you already know, since you never described this. I was hoping to build on top of the knowledge that you currently have and figure out if an explanation at the level that you can comprehend can be made.

But in this post alone, I've written way more than you have in all your posts in this thread combined. If you are not willing to put some effort into make such explanation, then I'm bowing out.
