What is infinity?

So, this week, I will write about something a bit different. I will be talking about a math concept commonly known as “infinity”.

Most people see infinity as a sideways 8, the common symbol. However, infinity has different levels. The first level of infinity is…….

This is the first “smallest infinity”. This is the number of all natural numbers there are. Also, all even numbers. Also, all odd numbers. Also, all rational numbers. This is the number that is equal to the sum of every single number possible.

But what if you have an ℵnumber of lines, and then you draw one after all those lines?

Would it be a ℵ+ 1? No. It would still be ℵ0, but you just start from the one after. But what if you had to show the lines in the order that it were drawn? Then it would be ω (omega). This number does not contribute to the total, but is after ℵ0. Congratulations, you have just passed infinity. After ω, it is ω + 1, then +2, then so on, then, skipping x2 and so forth, you get ω1. Then, ωω… No problem. This is just ε0. But what if there is a level of infinity, so high, that no amount of lower infinities caould reach it.

 

Such a number is called an inaccessible cardinal. The symbol? θ. This is a number so infathobly large that is would be impossible to reach. Interestingly enough, a shadow of this number has already been found.   ℵ0. Nothing can also reach it from below.

Congragulations. You have reached infinity.

Super Bowl Predictions

So, this year’s Super Bowl will definitely be pretty unpredictable. Here are my guesses on who will go to the 51st Super Bowl.

AFC

1. Patriots- I think that the Pats have a very good chance to get to the Super Bowl. They have a commanding lead in the AFC with a 6 – 1 record. This is personally my favorite team, but I’m not being biased about this.

2. Broncos- After their win in Super Bowl 50, I think the Broncos still might get far in the playoffs, even with a new QB. Whether or not they will make the Super Bowl is yet to be decided.

3. Texans- the Texans actually are putting together a very good run this year, as they currently have the same record as the Steelers. This is mainly because of Brock Osweiler, who led the Broncos to defeat the Pats last season.

4. Steelers- I think they actually have less of a chance of getting to the Super Bowl this year than last, just because of all the competition that they have. Nonetheless, they still have a decent run.

NFC

1. Seahawks- The Seahawks probably have a chip on their shoulder after the Malcolm Butler interception to win the 49th Super Bowl. So far they are doing a bit better than last year with a 4-1-1 record as of the time that I’m writing this. Yes, the offense is a bit choppy, but the defense is still probably the best in the league. So the 4 time #1 defense still has a shot of getting another Super Bowl ring.

2. Cardinals- The Cards are doing very well this year, especially their offense. If their defense & special teams can get it together, then they have a great chance of making the Super bowl.

3. Giants- Yes, I know the Giants don’t have a great record this year, but I  still have a feeling that they can make it pretty far in the playoffs.

4.  Packers- It will be hard to predict whether or not Green Bay will make it to the Super Bowl. Aaron Rodgers is very unpredictible and could possibly lead them to a victory in the playoffs.

In conclusion, Super Bowl 51 will definitely be unpredictable, and I am very excited to see who will go all the way.
