## There are Different Types of Infinity Fact

There are different types of infinity (∞) which differ by size, countability, “flavor” and more. Most types have practical real world applications.

Mathematics (Math) is the study of physical properties and measurable change, logic is a philosophy that uses mathematics-based reasoning. Logic can also apply non-mathematics-based reasoning (see section on logic in philosophy for all non-mathematics based logic).

Physics is a branch of physical science rooted in math that asks “how does it work?” Metaphysics is a broad branch of philosophy that asks, “What is its true nature?”

The Earth is not flat; the Earth is an oblate spheroid (a bumpy sphere with a fat equator and skinny poles). There are many ways to prove the earth’s geometry.

Einstein’s mass-energy equivalence equation (E=mc2) shows that mass and energy are equivalent (but not “exactly the same”) properties of a physical system.

Bayes’ theorem is a probability theory used to calculate the likely-hood of an event being true or un-true based on conditions related to the event.

Pi (π) is an irrational number, meaning it represents a real number with a non-repeating pattern that can’t fully be expressed.

Correlation does not imply causation, but it can indicate it. The more correlating factors between events, the more likely there is a causal relationship.

Past results of random independent events, like a coin flip, don’t affect future results. The mistaken belief that past results affect future results is known as “the Gambler’s Fallacy” (AKA the Fallacy of the Maturity of Chances, or the Monte Carlo Fallacy).

In the purest sense, computers can’t generate truly random numbers; they generate pseudo-random numbers based on a programmed algorithm instead.

Most people have about 6 degrees of separation (small world theory), but not everyone has 6 degrees of separation from Kevin Bacon or any other given person.
