shall we compare
infinities,
you and I?
all the odds
are infinite
all the evens
too
both, together
doubly
so
to keep things fair
you can take the evens
and
I will take the odds
then all our infinities
will be even

How true…combine to make the ultimate infinite.. 🙂

Am I allowed to crit on here? – I liked it till the last two lines – which didn’t feel ‘ping’ enough?
If it had been ‘will be even-tually’ – maybe? Maybe I should leave all that to IP!
Woot, Fantastic!!

As far as Crabs are concerned, Panda’s have Carte Blanche, especially since you homed in on the exact spot that I was not entirely happy with. It was kind of a response to one of Susan’s Stones so I felt I needed to get it posted in a timely fashion, ready or not…how about “will be equal”? I was playing with the mathematical concept of different sizes of infinities and the idea of fairness, equality, and perhaps my own oddity. This may flesh out into something more in the future….and may never be “finished”.
Thanks as always for your insight.
It is always welcome here.

Okay – so here’s some head-fucky stuff. If your coming from mathematics these ideas might do it…

x || y :means: Parallel (geometry) Incomparable (order theory) or exactly divisible. So the twin lines mean parallel or incomparable or exactly divisible depending on the mathematical paradigm. ” You || Me ” Would be an ending of wonderful ambiguity.

Overlined (opposite to underlined but can’t do it in comments) = Complex conjugate – In mathematics, complex conjugates are a pair of complex numbers, both having the same real part, but with imaginary parts of equal magnitude and opposite signs (one +, the other -). Which is kind of lovely and incomprehensible!

ℵα represents an infinite cardinality – Ooer missus!

~ asymptotic equivalence (x2 + 2x) (2x is insignificant when X is a large number) – So if your infinities met, all else is insignificant! You + Me ~ Everything

R ⋈ S is the natural join of the relations R and S – speaks for itself

≅ Isomorphic or geometric congruence (equivalence), that is to say, the shape/geometry of the objects are equivalent. So ” you ≅ me ” would mean we are the same.

And Mike – that just made my heart thump a little harder 🙂 I LOVE math…

I was thinking the same thing today (I read on my phone but commenting or even liking sometimes is a PITA)…about the last two lines. My thought was asymptotes… that you being even and odd were asymptotes approaching each other infinitely.

Oh, Crabby, I like, I like it very much. Now, as to infinities being even, which is where you are dissatisfied–how about congruent infinities–however you choose to word it in your wonderful crustacean mind.

Really like the concept here, and I am surfing the ripples of this.

Thanks Susan–that means so much to me!
But I think I can do better–
How about:
“then all our infinities
can be congruent
(or contiguous or co-mingled)”
I am confounded…

I have only just started re-familiarizing myself with LC. Read quite a bit many years ago. I don’t recall that piece specifically but it does sound familiar now you mention it. I shall have to explore that further. I find that extremely flattering but also a bit worrisome. Strange how things can bubble to the surface, unawares…
Thank you for noticing that–(do you know the title of that piece by any chance?)
