Question about infinity and infinite possibilities.

Wouldn't it also to be true that if an infinite number of planets meant that anything imaginable would exist, that since it is imaginable that a planet like ours would not[/b'] exist, that that would prove that it didn't? :D

 

You are correct and this is the theory of the infinite-infinite universe where everything including all contradictions are present and acceptable.

I also want to add that you must be careful as to what you are referring the infinite to. If you are referring to an infinite universe in space extension or time extension but within the physical laws of our universe as known so far, then all these weird possibilities (planet of elephants) are most likely not possible. But if you refer to an infinite universe in terms of "possibilities", "concepts", "laws of physics", "combinations" in other words an infinite universe in terms of all possible "concepts" conceivable, then you are no longer dealing with the realm of physics but metaphysics and philosophy and thus the infinite-infinite universe with all its acceptable contradictions.

the way i understand infinity is very simple when something is infinite its quantity can be anything from 1 too 9999999999999999999999999 so thats means that the universe if infinite could have 1 km of space or 9999999999999999999999 km of space. also it could have 1 or 9999999999999999999999999999999999 grams of matter or planets or anything, meaing that the density could be anything but becasue the density has a certain limit that means that the universe also would have finite space and mass.

Actually infinity only seems impossible because of all the limits that seems to occur in our world, it is still possilbe that infinity is possible without getting evidence but once you apply evidence around you, you find that this universe does end, but then whats out side, other universes? maybe millions, then whats outside that because that cant be infinte then how many of these places that hold millions of universes are there. and so and you will never come to logical conslusion.
