infinity is a mathematical concept and does not exist in nature. This may seem childish but it isnt't;

if the universe corresponds to a physical version of inifinity I would call it phy-inifinite.

This reduces the effect of posting an absoluteness (concept) to the physical word.

What may help is that those of you who know mathematics know that there are different classes

of infinity. The infinity-class for the range of whole numbers is a different kind then the infinity-class for

the range of real numbers. If the universe would be phy-infinite, then for instance a set of phy-laws

must be developed leading to that result such as QM or GR.

The same pitfall arises,according to me, in string-therory where the most elementary building-block

is a one dimensional string. Same arguments apply; dimensions do not exist in nature, perhaps

phy-dimensions,subttle or isn't it ...?
