Thought Experiments 4/6

And so to another installment of the Thought Experiment mini series.

This week the rather baffling concept of an infinite hotel from David Hilbert.

Week 4: Hilbert’s Infinite Hotel.

By it’s own definition infinity (∞) is a rather perplexing idea, since it has no upper (or lower) bound or end it stands to reason that ∞+1 = ∞.

Stranger still it remains true that ∞+∞ = ∞.

That should keep your mind suitably occupied this weekend!
