Here we can share the Wisdom Infinite...!

Sri Swami Sivananda speaks on "You are the Master of your own Destiny"

It would take an infinite amount of time to share infinite wisdom. I don't think you are going to manage in one small YouTube video.

You are definitely exhibiting a more humorous aspect to your posting.

What if you got said wisdom on an infinitely wide bandwidth forum? Wouldn't that give you that infinite wisdom in an infinitely small amount of time?

Doesn't that depend on their respective aleph numbers (cardinality)?

Well, wisdom is to do with information and information is measured in bits, which makes it countable. Bandwidth is measured in frequency and as far as we know isomorphic to the reals - a countable infinity divided by an uncountable one comes out to zero. Although there's some controversy about whether space-time is continuous, if it is not then you have countable infinity divided by finite and it takes an infinitely long time.

I wonder if the speed of light in a vacuum enters into the calculations. If there were a vacuum such as inside sunhouse's cranium perhaps wisdom would never penetrate.π

Not so. Just because computer programmers like to measure information in bits doesn't mean information is inherently countable. It only means computers can only store countable information.

If spacetime is continuous then the information carried in a photon could be uncountably infinite.

What do you mean 'IF'?

Since we are talking about wisdom the relevant type of information is a string of symbols and that is countable. Even if the information is continuous it can still measured in bits, it just depends on whether you take your log relative to base 2 or use a natural logarithm when it's Boltzmann's constant in natural units.

But the final digit of e has not been revealed.

Why? Explain your reasoning rather than just stating it as fact. I see no reason why wisdom must be either in strings or countable.

No, it can't. The reals are not countable.

I don't understand. Please expand on that. How would you store PI in bits?
