Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Infinity is the idea of something that has no end. In our world we don't have anything like it. So we imagine traveling on and on, trying hard to get there, but that is not actually infinity. So don't think like that (it just hurts your brain!). Just think "endless", or "boundless". If there is no reason something should stop, then it is infinite.
