  • “Warning! Caution! Be wise! Question all that you are about to read herein, accepting nothing as fact until you are certain that you are certain. Also, beware of the fact that thinking about and/or meditating on the concept of Infinity, without first accepting the eternal presence of Love, is dangerous and contrary to the full truth of infinity (which encompasses everything, every emotion and every idea, including the most important reality of all: LOVE).

    “May simple but deep thoughts and words fill your life with meaning and reason. May wisdom, love, peace and prosperity be yours”.

    From the opening of the book “The Most Important Thought”,
    By Jean-Pierre Ady Fenyo
    Today is Universal and International Infinity Day. Apparently, this occurs every year on the eighth day of the eighth month of the year, eight having some significance – for starters, if 8 lays down on it’s side, it becomes the symbol of infinity. This day is set aside to celebrate and promote pilosophy and philosophizing for the ordinary person. Whatever that means.

    Here’s from the official website for this day:

    Hello there! International & Universal Infinity Day is YOUR Day to Celebrate Philosophy, Art, Science and Life! It is a day when we should encourage everyone to Think Deeply, Ponder Deep Philosophical Questions, such as: What Is IT All About? Why Are We Here? What are the Logical Implications of a Universe that is Infinite? How Can We Bring About An Everlasting Era of Enlightenment, of Wisdom, of Peace, Love, Empathy, Understanding, of Ethics? This is a day which to Us Represents everything that is the opposite of Ignorance, the opposite of Irrational Hate & Fear, the opposite of Brutal Intolerance and Barbaric Violence. Infinity Day is for Philosophers, Artists, Scientists, Spiritual & Scientific Lovers of Life, who seek to unravel the many mysteries of Life, of Existence before and beyond Life, of the Universe itself! As Albert Einstein so aptly put it: "He ( or She, or Shim ) who can no longer pause to wonder and stand rapt in awe, is as good as dead; his ( her or shem's ) eyes are closed." - Albert Einstein . Infinity Day was originally created by the Philosopher-Poet-Artist Jean-Pierre Ady Fenyo in 1988. You are more than welcome to share this site with all the other wonderful people in your life.

  • I’m feeling rather infinite today, myself, so I thought it was pretty cool that it also happened to be this special day on the calendar. It’s been a week of infinite moments. I felt it in the ballpark Wednesday night, and I felt it pretty much all day yesterday, just this sense of an infinite connection to life, this opening of a vortex somewhere that let me step into infinity. Not infinitely, mind you, but within the confines of my own finite mind, I felt like I got a glimpse of infinity. It went on forever, in those moments.

    I remember a scene in the movie, “Perks of Being a Wallflower”, where the three friends are driving a pickup through the Fort Pitt Tunnel in my old home town of Pittsburgh, and the girl stands up in the back of the pickup with her arms outstretched, with David Bowie’s “Heroes” blasting on the radio, until the car bursts out of the tunnel onto the Fort Pitt Bridge, with all of downtown Pittsburgh spread out before them, and the wallflower kid says to his diary later, “And in that moment, I swear we were infinite.”

    Kind of like that.

    Have a Gr8 day – dig infinity.
