    No. Infinity is a Symbol or an idea not a number. You may not take the difference between infinity and two and infinity and one and compare.

    Because infinity isn't an official number, right? It's just something people say.

    2 is closer to positive infinity, bro.

    infinity - 1 = infinity
    infinity - 2 = infinity

    therefore ...

    infinity -1 = infinity -2

    therefore ...

    -1 = -2
