The Paradox of Zero and Infinity

I have heard of those who can silence the voices and conversations within their minds. They must either live in perfect bliss or be blessed with a mind free of complexity.

A dull mind.

What happens within a dull mind?

How exactly do the blind dream?

These questions have haunted me for years, driving me to explore the depths of my thoughts and beliefs. Once, I tried to prove that Zero is Infinity. A friend told me my hypothesis was illogical, asking, “If I have infinity dollars and you have zero dollars, would you still think the same way?” I responded with a verse from the Bible I remembered from Sunday School, “For what does it profit a man to gain the whole world and forfeit his soul?”

I genuinely believe that Zero, or “no-thing,” can be described as Infinity. If there is such a thing as no-thing, the maximum of no-thing is nothing.

“The infinite value of that thing, no-thing, is nothing.”

“∞ = 0.”

This concept might sound absurd to many, but it holds a profound truth. In a world obsessed with material gain and quantifiable achievements, we often overlook the significance of nothingness. We fail to see the potential that lies in the void, in the absence of everything.

In mathematics, Zero is often seen as the starting point, the origin. Infinity, on the other hand, is boundless, endless. Yet, in their extremities, they converge. The universe, in its vastness, mirrors this paradox. The more we seek to understand it, the more we realize how much we don’t know.
