The Sum Of InfinityThere is really no need for this Chapter. But people tend to complicate things sometimes. So this topic needs to be (briefly) covered, if nothing else, to ust bring the issue to a close. So !e"re going to be adding together a lot of #umbers here, in an attempt to find the sum of Infinity.But the true sum of an Infinity of #umbers is al!ays going to be $. It doesn"t matter !hat angle you come at it from, or !hat convoluded pseudo%math you apply to it. &ny possible assemblage of #umbers that you can come up !ith, !hen eventually 'added up to determine the sum of Infinity, !ould also be reuired to be added to an eual assemblage of their negative counterparts, and this addition !ill al!ays yield the perfect sum of $. Infinity IS #othing. *ou should +no! that by no!.&nd even if !e disregard '#egative #umbers (as !e"ve done previously in other Chapters), !e !ill still run into a similar problem as !as seen in the earlier Chapter on 'esser Infinities, !here !e !ill never even be able to start the process of addition at all. Basically, !hy start the addition !ith the -, !hen !e could instead start !ith ($).- Or, for that matter, ($).$- Or ($).$$- Or ($).$$$$$$$$$$$$... &ren"t all of these decimal #umbers a part of Infinity (/e !ill loo+ at decimal #umbers in the second half (and footnotes) of this Chapter.)But, if !e leave it there, then !e don"t have a Chapter, so I !ill go ahead and complicate things myself, and ta+e a loo+ at !hat happens !hen !e try to determine the sum of an Infinity of (only '0ositive, non%decimal) #umbers, first using 'regular math, and then (in the second half of this Chapter) using '1orte2 3ath on the results of the 'regular math (both of !hich !ill give us interesting (if inaccurate) insights into Infinity. So, first, !e have the sum of the first ten #umbers, sho!n belo!.

-45464748494:4;4<4-$=88 (-%-$)

The sum of the first ten #umbers is 88, and this !ill be referred to as the 'Base Sum. #e2t, !e have the sum of the ne2t ten #umbers, sho!n belo!.

--4-54-64-74-84-94-:4-;4-<45$=-88 (--%5$)

&bove, the sum (of -88) is e2actly one%hundred larger than the previous 'Base Sum (of 88), but this is not une2pected, as !e"ve ust performed the same basic functions, only !ith an e2tra ten -$"s, one in front of each #umber, for a total of an e2tra hundred, !hich sho!s up as the - at the front of the sum. This is sho!n belo! highlighted in red.

--4-54-64-74-84-94-:4-;4-<45$=-88

&nd, if !e move on to the ne2t ten #umbers, !e again ust add another hundred on to the same 'Base Sum, as is again sho!n belo! highlighted in red.

5-45545645745845945:45;45<46$=588

So, !e can logically (and correctly) assume that the ne2t seven sets of ten #umbers !ill all display this same progression, !hich means that to determine the sum of the #umbers -%-$$, !e !ould use the function seen belo!.

(-%-$)(--%5$)(5-%6$) (6-%7$) (7-%8$) (8-%9$) (9-%:$) (:-%;$) (;-%<$) (<-%-$$)

884-88458846884788488849884:884;884<88=8$8$ (-%-$$)

So, the sum of the #umbers -%-$$ is a variation on the 'Base Sum of -%-$ (88). &dding one additional $ to the uantity of total #umbers adds t!o $"s to the sum, as is sho!n belo!.

-%-$ 88-%-$$ 8$8$

&bove, the matching #umbers are highlighted in blue, and the added $"s are highlighted in red.
So, adding one $, or po!er of ten, to the uantity of #umbers (-$ to -$$) adds one $ to the end of the
sum of the #umbers, but also adds another $, stuc+ in bet!een the original t!o #umbers (88).
This behavior of adding of t!o $"s !ill persist as !e !or+ our !ay through each po!er of ten, and this is due to the fact that each e2tra po!er (of ten) not only brings along its (single) $ (-$, -$$, -$$$ etc...),
it also brings along its uantity of the e2tra po!er (ten -$"s, one%hundred -$$"s, one%thousand -$$$"s, etc...). (/e !ill continue to trac+ these po!ers of ten as !e progress through all of these sums.) &lso, !hile the uantity of #umbers gro!s e2actly ten times larger (-$ to -$$), the sums do not gro! by uite the same ratio. 88>-$=88$, !hich is much smaller than the sum of 8$8$. &nd 88>-$$=88$$, !hich is a bit larger than the sum of 8$8$ (though it contains the same #umbers). So the rate of gro!th is much more that -$>, and slightly less than -$$>. &nd if !e divide 8$8$ by 88, !e get the dividend of <-.;-;-;-... (an Infinitely repeating decimal). (/e !ill ta+e a closer loo+ at this ratio once !e have a fe! other ratios to compare it !ith.)So, moving on from there, the ne2t ten #umbers (-$-%--$) maintain a similar pattern, as is sho!n belo! (again highlighted in red). (The blue highlighting !ill be e2plained in a moment.)

-$-4-$54-$64-$74-$84-$94-$:4-$;4-$<4--$=-$88 (-$-%--$)

&bove, !e have the same basic progression (of -4546...), but !ith an e2tra ten -$$"s, one in front of each #umber (the red -"s). These ten -$$"s all add up to -$$$, !hich is represented in the sum (the red
-) in front of the 'Base Sum of 88. (The blue $"s !ill be addressed !ith the ne2t ten #umbers.)
&nd since !e"re no! into triple digit #umbers, !e have t!o po!ers of ten in front of the original progression, !hich are represented in the ne2t ten #umbers belo! (---%-5$), in colors, !ith -$"s in blue, and -$$"s (again) in red.

---4--54--64--74--84--94--:4--;4--<4-5$=--88 (---%-5$)

&bove, in the sum, !e see the 'Base Sum (of 88) in blac+, !ith the ten ( blue) -$"s added up to -$$ (the blue -), and the ten (red) -$$"s added up to -$$$ (the red -).
So, !e can again determine the ne2t ten sums (of ten #umbers each), and the sum of all ten of these sums, for the total sum of the #umbers -$-%5$$, !hich is sho!n belo!.

(-$-%--$) (---%-5$) (-5-%-6$) (-6-%-7$) (-7-%-8$) (-8-%-9$) (-9-%-:$) (-:-%-;$) (-;-%-<$) (-<-%5$$)

-$884--884-5884-6884-7884-8884-9884-:884-;884-<88=-8$8$ (-$-%5$$)

&bove, !e have the sum of -8$8$, !hich is 8$8$ (from the sum of -%-$$), !ith a - in front of it (in the ten%thousands place) from the addition of an e2tra one%hundred -$$"s (-$$>-$$=-$$$$). (?ach red - above is ten -$$"s.)So, if !e add the sum of the #umbers -%-$$ to the sum of the #umbers -$-%5$$, !e get the sum of the #umbers -%5$$, sho!n belo!.

8$8$4-8$8$=5$-$$ (-%5$$)

&nd, if !e determine the rate of gro!th bet!een the sums of the first one%hundred #umbers (-%-$$) and the ne2t one%hundred #umbers (-$-%5$$) by dividing the sums, !e get -8$8$@8$8$=5.<;$-<;$-<;$-..., another Infinitely repeating decimal #umber (!hich !ill be loo+ed at later in this Chapter, along !ith the others). &nd, !e can determine that the ne2t ten sets of ten #umbers !ill also follo! the same simple progression, as is confirmed belo! !ith the sum of the ne2t ten #umbers (5$-%5-$).

5$-45$545$645$745$845$945$:45$;45$<45-$=5$88

&bove, !e see that the same basic pattern holds, !ith the ten (red) 5$$"s adding to 5$$$, !hich is added on to the front of the 'Base Sum of 88, to give us 5$88. (The blue #umbers are $"s in the above e2ample, but !ill also follo! the same basic progression that they did previously.)
