Do you consider the entire probability matrix "probability
tree" to be infinite
Excellent question, and honestly, I hadn't thought that far down
the probability tree. Now that I do, I come to a crossroads in
my thinking. I do believe that all paths on the probability tree
eventually end. Where do they end? That's the question.
Particles eventually decay, lives do end, all things eventually
come to an end. Or do they?
(i.e.: not talking about just any one particular Probability
path or probability
I guess that's the real question; where do we go after we die?
O.k. I still believe that all paths on the tree eventually come
to an end. A path that has no probable next node. But we're once
again viewing things in a time oriented/biased fashion. We keep
using words like "After" and thinking in terms of "What's
next?". Loaded words/concepts that keep us in the time oriented
All paths on the probability tree eventually come to an end. The
last node in any probability path might end in particulate
disintigration. It may be the node where a Super-Nova is
occurring, or the node where a dust mote finally falls into the
sun. Your physical existence (The node where your
consciousness/point of view currently resides) may end in the
fiery ball of a nuclear war. I certainly hope not though.
What we have to keep in mind is that our consciousness is what
dictates a probability path. What's the next node that we/you/I
can experience? What's the next probable step in 'our'
evolution. In the Hindu religion, you would start a new journey
on a new probability path (reincarntaion). In other religions,
death is seen as a time when ones soul (consciousness) is moved
to a 'higher plane' (Heaven?). What I keep trying to emphasize
is that there are limited choices, but a very, very, very, very,
very, very large number of limited choices.
I can't tell you what happens after your consciousness reaches
the end of your probability path. Once again you're going to
have to seek out the services of a Priest, Rabbi, or Shaman.
What I will say is this. Even after you reach the end of your
probability path, the nodes of the 'Probability Matrix' will
still be there. I'm not trying to say that they are 'infinite',
or that they will 'always' be there. Just that they
simultaneously coexist in an overlapping multidimensional matrix.
The number of nodes is limited. The number of nodes that we can
experience is limited, and our path will eventually come to an
'end'. If we can get past the use of time centric words like
'continue', 'after', 'next'. We'll come to understand that time
is simply a concoction of our consciousness, our mortal
limitations, and the inability to simultaneously/instantaneously
comprehend the matrix, and it's attendent nodes.
I still don't believe in Infinity. In this discussion you got me
thinking about infinity again. But the standard definition of
'Infinity' is clearly derived from our time oriented perception
of reality. When you think about Infinity, you think about some
thing, or event, which goes on forever. You're placing a
time-centric template over your though processes.
Break the bonds of time. There is no such thing as time. You
simply are. All things simply exist. Think in terms of Occam's
Razor, Ernest Mach's principle of economy; "Scientists must use
the simplest means of arriving at their results and exclude
everything not perceived by the senses.", Or the Parsimony
Principle. The simplest explanation, no matter how absurd, is
the most likely. A universe without time or motion eliminates a
vast array of conundrums. Escape from your 'path' and experience
the whole 'matrix'.
You may be thinking I've dodged your question. But I don't see
it that way. I'm thinking outside the 'Box' of time.

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.
Yes, it was a loaded question. However you did answer it quit well.
One lose end to tie up yet. Do you consider the entire probability
matrix "probability tree" to be infinite (i.e.: not talking about just
any one particular Probability path or probability branch)?
