"The Universe is not just queerer than we imagine, it is queerer than we can imagine."

That would explain the theory some people have that the universe is bent.

I just knew that was coming. I must be psychic.

The great German mathematician Georg Cantor proved that tthere must be more numbers in the set of Rational Numbers than in the set of Real Numbers.

The trouble is both sets are "infinite". (You can always "keep counting".).

Cantor proved that there are two different "Infinities".

Figure that one out!

Are you sure about this? Rational and irrational numbers are subsets of real numbers :? . He found that there there were more real numbers than natural (counting) numbers even though there are an infinite number of each. In fact he found that there are an "infinity of infinities" :shock: .

A right brainy bastid our Georg :wink: .

Down with vwls.

Cantor called them "transfinite numbers".

Strange stuff.

P.S.

You are right Declan.

I meant to write "more REALS".

Me dumbo.
