The Universe is a holographic fractal (Science has proof of this) and each part of the Universe contains the whole pattern of the whole, so therefore we are all infinite beings since a piece of infinite is still infinite.

Scientifically speaking, humans and living things in general are created in order to reproduce *smirk* That's why there is 2 genders. Of course, on a more personal level, we are here to be happy and do anything in order to gain happiness...which might mean returning to the scientific reason why humans exist...if you know what I mean ;]

that has crossed my mind many times but i come to the conclusion that we do. I mean if not whats the value of our life?

Do we exist.... Well of cause we do... Why? because we experience... It doesn't matter if it is a dream, some kind of matrix or that we are so infinitely small that you can't see us... It doesn't change the fact that we live and feel...
We decide what we are and how we see the world... That is why we exist... No matter how unimportant we might be, we are important to ourselves and those around us...

Meh... Got a little of subject I think but in short that question is irrelevant and we should focus on how to make the world better for those around us and ourselves :)

LIke ^

Now, as for the question. If you consider it like end behavior where one thing goes to infinity (say humans ---> infinity)

We are so small that we are considered as nothing in the grand scheme of things. Kind of like a fraction of: The Earth/ The Universe. The universe is so big that Earth is insignificant. However, just because this may be stated by some high level being who are "Bigger than us", it doesn't mean we don't exist. We exist to other humans, yes?

Or is this really the matrix and we're all screwed~

Our existence is real but we are merely puppets being held through a crystal ball in the hands of a giant alien.

I'm not sure how much experience in Mathematics you have, but a subset of infinity can definitely be finite. The number 1 is a finite interval, even though it's contained in infinity. A piece of infinite is not necessarily infinite. If you want to say that our "structure" is a copy of the infinite "structure" of the universe, and therefore we are infinite, I suppose that's alright, but to say that a piece of infinity is infinity is just clearly wrong, and your point holds without it.

To the OP, you are wrong for the same reasons Vega is wrong with that last statement. As a "mathematician" you should know that a finite subset is finite, even though it is a subset of infinity. Even if our parts are infinitesimally small, that just means that our whole limits to some finite number. For some reason, you seem to think that it limits to zero. I don't see any way for that to be true. Your original statement basically says, because infinity exists, every interval is infinity. No, it's not. As the universe gets bigger, we stay the same size. You seem to make the assertion that as the universe gets bigger, we get smaller, which is not true. "1" is the same size regardless of the interval it is contained on. As a "mathematician," this should make sense to you.

I Am therefore, we exist.

We are made of what is physical. Consciousness or no, we and everything else still exists.

Hmm, truly i don't really care, it doesn't change the events that I experienced, doesn't matter how small we are compare to the universe, we all live our life, ignoring that we prolly but a speck of dust next to the universe. And we will continue to ignore the universe until a giant flaming meteor coming crashing upon us XD
