I'll have to look into this. You are absolutely right that you can
describe all the measurements I was also describing without resorting to
infinities or different sizes of infinity. By redefining the methods to
avoid the controversial units, you have accurately described my examples
in regular, noncontroversial terms. I will keep this idea in mind in
the future when I am confronted with describing controversial or
disputed information. Thanks for teaching me something!
