    ∞ refers to something without any limit. It cannot be measured & is not really a number so even though you would think one to the power of infinity = 1 - that is  false. Infinity = Infinity + 1.

    for n>0 (∞)^n =∞
    for n=0 (∞)^n =1
    for n

    Eternity means forever in life.

    It is my love for my wife is eternity till death occurs. Though it is everlasting in centuries but human life is limited therefore my eternity of love goes on till death.

    Something that is without end, lasts forever, continuing into an unknown.

    Eternity is beyond life and forever. God is eternal. For me is love is also eternal as I do believe that love is a part of God.

    What is eternity? Well, it is by definition, infinity. It is also referred to as "forever". For those unaccustomed to the term "infinity" and "forever", let us just say it is a duration of time that never, ever, ever, ever ends. :0)

    Pardon me. Beyond me. For this one, I give you the answer of a man of God:

    What is the difference between Immortality and Eternity?

    Sri Chinmoy: Immortality deals with life, life in the form of consciousness, life in the form of reality and life in the form of object, subject or substance. ............. When you deal with the illumining consciousness, at that time you do not pay any attention to the senses. You feel that you don't need the satisfaction of the senses, or of anything that belongs to earth, because at that time you see that earth itself is impermanent. The only thing that is permanent is the birthless and deathless Divine.

    Now when we think of Eternity, at that time we have to know that anything that is created, either on the physical plane, the vital plane, the mental plane or the transcendental plane, can be eternal. It may have had its beginning yesterday, but it can go on, go on for millions and billions and trillions of years.

    Immortality deals with life and life came from Silence. We can count Eternity, but we cannot count Immortality. However, Immortality came first, because Silence itself was life. So life comes first, and then only can we start counting. First one is born, then he is one second old, one day old, one year old, and so on.

    So in Eternity there is a sense of measurement, while there is none in Immortality. You can't measure Immortality, whereas you can try to calculate Eternity with your imagination. The sense of measurement comes in Eternity. It is divine, intuitive and psychic measurement. Then, if you use your third eye, immediately you will know when it started and how it goes on. Immortality is something that is already there.

    Let us take Eternity as a tree that is growing, growing and growing. Eternity grows and Immortality remains the same. Immortality is already there; just use your vision. But Eternity is always going upwards. Eternity's conception goes upwards, while Immortality is all around.

    Sri Chinmoy, Miracles, Emanations And Dreams, Agni Press, 1977.
