Question: Is each event infinity different from each other, or
can there be two events the same?
Answer: In three parts.
Part 1: This is a loaded question. Because you included the word
infinity in your question, I am inherently agreeing to a
presumption of infinity (should have said infinitely by the way)
if I answer yes. For example.
Part 2: I do believe that each event is unique. No two events
are alike. I already stated that. In doing so I also stated that
I do not believe that anything is infinite.
Part 3: Simply stating that any two events are unique, does not
imply that there are an infinite number of events. That would be
I have explained that there are a limited number of nodes
(events) on any given probability path. The number of possible
nodes (events) in any given probability path is limited by other
physical constraints (laws of physics (Gravity, laws of
thermodynamics, conservation of energy, etc...).
As an example, we could revisit one of our old examples. A
fish cannot jump out of a stream and become a G.E. Energy saver
refrigerator. It is restricted from doing so by numerous laws of
physics. Please don't ask me to come up with all the physical
laws which would contradict such a transmogrification (Yes
that's a real word, you can look it up if you'd like. I actually
learned it from the Calvin and Hobbes comic strip). I'm sure one
could come up with some of the specifics, if they cracked open a
physics book (Maybe I'll go buy one..).
Because there are limitations on the number of possible
events (nodes in the probability tree), there is no infinity.
limitations on choices = no infinite choices.
So once again I restate my assumption: All events are unique and
static. They all coexist simultaneously within the probability
matrix, and they never occur more than once. I say no to
Of course it's very difficult to prove a negative in this
assumption. I'd spend an awful long time (not an infinite amount
of time) trying to prove it. So I'll just continue to call this
an assumption for now.

Good point, I'll take that into account. I'll have to use that
one. That is: make someone explain what makes an event the
You say you don't believe anything is infinite. Answer this:
Is each event infinity different from each other, or can there
be two events the same?
Time does not exist, and neither does motion. Seriously, it
