if you told a computer with infinite processing power to run a program that may or may not terminate, what would happen?
>>
>>52446373
It may or may not terminate.
>>
>>52446373
it will install gentoo
>>
>>52446373
It either terminates immediately or doesn't at all.
>>
If I told a dick with infinite sperm to run yourmom.exe, she may or may not get pregnant, what would happen?
>>
bad articulation of the question. what i meant to say was, what would happen if you tried to run a program that may take an infinite amount of time to process, on a computer with infinite processing power?
>>
>>52446373
It creates the universe.
>>
>>52446432
both
>>
>>52446439
like, would you get exact pi and euler's number? or would it go on endlessly still?
>>
>>52446462
well, does pi ever end or not? figure that out first
>>
>>52446477
well it doesn't since its' an irrational number. what i'm asking however is can infinite processing circumvent infinite precision?
>>
>>52446522
Can an infinite amount of black men satisfy your infinite desire for cock?
>>
>>52446439
Processing power and algorithms are two completely separate things.
>>
>>52446522
Why would you even have an infinite amount of processing power?
>>
>>52446439
Infinity doesn't exist in reality, so your question is merely a philosophical question, not a tech one.
>>
>>52446462
for pi it would go endlessly. just because you have infinite power it doesn't mean you can make infinite things not infinite, it would just go on on and on (infinitely fast)
>>
>>52446870
but then wouldn't that mean pi has more than an infinite amount of decimal places?
>>
>>52446894
..No?

>more than infinite
>>
>>52446894
Do you even infinite
>>
>>52446922
>>52446920
>>52446904
but you're saying that an infinite amount of processing power isn't enough to calculate pi. what else would it mean? i mean shouldn't they cancel each other out? if you can drive a car at infinite km/h on a road that's infinite kms long, wouldn't you reach the end of it?
>>
>>52446952
its means ur fucking retarded son.
processing is speed. if you process something infinite it can't end no matter how fast you go.
running in a circle is infinite for example. how fast do you have to go to reach the end? if you run infinitely fast would you reach hit?
>>
>>52446976
how is that the same? you would be looping from beginning to end if it were a circle, you're just doing the same task an infinite amount of times. i'm talking about starting and finishing the one task.
>>
>>52446952
>drive faster than the speed of light

someone get this hot head outta here
>>
>>52447002
>finishing the one task
>a task that is infinite
as I said. you are retarded. infinite by definition has no end
>>
>>52446952
no because its fucking infinite.

Do recursion on the same program and see what happens!

>>52447024
then what does it diverge to?
>>
>>52447261
>it would just go on and on infinitely fast
I just answered you.
>>
>>52447287
how is that an answer? if someone said where does 1/0 approach do you just say "it goes on and on"?
>>
>>52447314
You're either very stupid or a troll. Either way go fuck yourself.
>>
>>52447343
0/10 rebuttal. either admit you don't know the answer, or provide it.
>>
>>52446462
Could it finish in finite time if ran similarly to a supertask?
>>
>>52446373
Infinite computing power is impossible (in our dimension) so your question isn't answerable.

Look here for more information and a starting place:

>>52446373
Define processing power with a countable axiom.
