0 = Infiniy??

i think zero is the state of absolute silence and no disturbance. it constitute the whole universe. all other forms manifest from this number. with a small ripple originates an infinitismally small number if we talk about maths.you start increasing it and you reach 1,2,3 -- - upto infinity. Infinity is a number after which no further numbers are possible ( beyond the scope of our mind). well this is the number which includes all other numbers and is nothing but infinity.

But if we go by nature we can say that in the begining of universe there was nothing, then the universe got created from nothing, and if somthing has a begining it should also have an end. It will get destroyed on day and that state of nothing will come, we can say the cycle will complete. But the question is what was there before origin of universe and what will remain after. But if the forces of nature are eternal and are responsible for everything then they were always present unchanged. Universe was a menifestation of these forces and therefor we can say everything was present before creation and will remain after destruction. The unmenifested whole which was there and which will remain containing everything unmenifested is nothing but ZERO ( Shunya in hindu mythology). a number is a very small menifestation of zero and doesnot contain everything. when you increase it it starts representing a larger part of whole (complete which is zero). if you keep on increasing it till infinity a number arrives which can represent everything, this number which contains all numbers ( so large that we cant imagine). when this number arise we realise that the cycle is complete and whole ( shunya or zero ) containing everything is attained.

a/0 = infinity, means infinity * 0 = a but if 0*any number = 0 how can 0*infinity = a, well they have considered 0 as an infinitesimally small number almost equal to 0. if you multiply it with a very large number (infinity as we cant imagine this number) you will get a. Similarly if 0/a=0, then 0*a=0 which is not true. It only implies that if we multiply an infinitesimally small number with any number a then the result will be approaching 0, it is not zero but an infinitesimally small number.
