this is just an idea, one that has most likely been said before. so please dont chastize me on here if i am a complete idiot.

infinity is all real numbers. so basically you can define it as everything. take the universe for example, it is everything, yet we consider it as a whole as 1 universe. so i would think that you would consider infinity as 1 infinity. 1-1=0
