Infinity Is Bigger Than You Think

By Luke Miller Truth Theory

Did you know that some infinities are bigger than others? Meaning that one measurement of infinity can actually be bigger than another? At first glance this sentence makes no sense right? How can 2 never ending patterns be measured in different sizes?

Well think of it like this if you count from 1 to infinity in single digits it will start as

1

2

3

4

5

6

7

8

9

10

And so on

But what if you are counting even numbers-

2

4

6

8

10

And so on

This infinite amount of numbers will be half the size of the other, while still being infinite. Strange right? These patterns actually go a lot deeper, and in this video from Numberphile we explore the concept of different measurements of infinity.
