LIM(X-->oo) X = oo

LIM(X-->oo) X+1 = oo

LIM(X-->oo) X*2 = oo

LIM(X-->oo) X^2 = oo

LIM(X-->oo) 2^X = ?



The difference in sizes between a finite set and its
finite powerset increases rapidly with the size of the
set so what prevents the same in the limit?
why ... the actual limit behavior is not actual?

( Virgil explains why Lim(x->oo)2^x > INFINITY )
