<<No I'm sorry Lawrence it does become nothing, that is the nature of infinity. The reason is because it becomes infinitely small, and as infinity is unending, infinitely small is unbeginning.

No you are incorrect it simply approximates zero. It is not zero. Zero cannot be calculated as a result of multiplication or division unless zero is already one of the numbers.

NUM1 / infinity = NUM2
multiply both sides by infinity
Num1 = NUM2 x infinity
NUM2 x infinity = NUM1

NUM1 / infinity = 0
multiply both sides by infinity
Num1 = 0

If NUM1 = 0 then my equation is still true, yours is true only if NUM1 is = 0. MINE is still true regardless of the value of NUM1.
