10-11-13 Weekly Photo Challenge: Infinite

This week the photo challenge is Infinite. It seems to me that when you check the definition of the word infinite it boils down to one of two things . 1: Having no limits; 2:  Extending indefinitely. There are other definitions but they all seem to be subsets of these two.

Merriam Webster Online defines it as:

1:  extending indefinitely :  endless <infinite space>
2:  immeasurably or inconceivably great or extensive : inexhaustible <infinite patience>
3:  subject to no limitation or external determination
4a :  extending beyond, lying beyond, or being greater than any preassigned finite value however large <infinite number of positive numbers>
 b :  extending to infinity <infinite plane surface>
 c :  characterized by an infinite number of elements or terms <an infinite set> <an infinite series>
Anyway. Lots of ways to go. Here are two.
First lets look at space. The final frontier.

Now that Voyager 1 has broken out of the solar system our species is getting its first real taste of the infinite size of space.

The moon is 384,400 km away – give or take where it is in its monthly cycle. Voyager 1 at the moment I type this is 18,871,155,000 km away and has barely left the solar system. The Jet Propulsion Laboratory has a really cool real-time odometer here that tracks Voyager 1 and Voyager 2.
I took this photograph in Wellfleet this past summer.

I went to visit 5Pointz today before they tear it down for high-rise apartments. I found this which I believe represents another infinite cycle – the food chain.

Now here are some other ways of looking at the subject.
