## Main Question or Discussion Point

anyone know of a proof for this?

here's my best guess...

if you think of "infinity" as an actual "place" (for example, you could say that x is

if you think of "infinity" as only "approachable" (ie x is approaching infinity, meaning it's just getting bigger and bigger and bigger and bigger) then it doesn't seem reasonable that 2 parallel lines would meet.

in other words, if you think of "infinity" as a PLACE where the rules of geometry n' such are different, then yes, i can

anyone got a proof / a way of thinking about it?

if you think of "infinity" as an actual "place" (for example, you could say that x is

*at infinity*), then i could kinda see how 2 parallel lines could meet.if you think of "infinity" as only "approachable" (ie x is approaching infinity, meaning it's just getting bigger and bigger and bigger and bigger) then it doesn't seem reasonable that 2 parallel lines would meet.
