Gabriel’s Horn There is a paradox in calculus called the Horn of Gabriel. It’s a mathematical function, a three dimensional representation of the two dimensional equation y=1/x, but rotated around the x axis.

## Infinite Goal Pursuits

Approaching Infinity There are certain mathematical functions that are only interesting around infinity. Of course, since infinity is not really anything that we can think about, we have to think about this in abstract terms. So these mathematical functions can’t really be solved, like normal algebraic equations, where X is some specific number […]
