    If you make it an uncountably infinite number of points and color each of them a different color then you have an uncountably infinite amount of colors

    and theres the mistake : youre betting an infinite amound of numbers agains a finite amount: you basically say that the amount of full numbers is finite. it isnt.
    let me explain :
    when ever you add another zero into the 0.00..1 i simply add 1 to the full numbers.
    you could now say "but then i have another infinite amound that i could count!" and yes , thats true , but i still wont be able to reach an end to the full numbers. infinite times infinity is infinity. no infinity². infinity minus whatever is infinity. infinity plus whatever is infinity. it doesnt end.
    what ever you try to explain that one infinity is bigger then the other i simply object -> where does one end for the other to go on further?.
    its a paradox that isnt a paradox. its faulty thinking.

    ? If infinity exists, then the odds are that I WILL see my dead parents again! Infinite times... And an infinite amount of those experiences will be heaven, and an infinite amount of those experiences will be hell. If infinity exists, then infinite infinities will likely exist (true infinity), (or no?!). And then all things aren't only possible, but WILL, and WILL HAVE already happened (?) And if that's the case, then why don't I remember just one of them? God dammit!

    This makes so much sense. Like it really does I now understands the number system of infinity ♾
