1. Starting from minus Infinity?

Is there any evidence for an actual physical infinity in existence?

You can't start counting at because it doesn't have a definite value. You can only apply normal arithmetic on finite values.

Physical? Draw a finite line on the floor. Walk half the distance in time t. Walk half the remaining distance again in the same time t. Continue doing this until you reach the other end. How long did it take you to get there?

Is the answer something like 2t? Was it worth ruining my carpets for that though? idk.

But is this evidence for a physical infinity?

The answer is you'll never get there or .

Each time you travel a smaller and smaller distance in the same amount of time, so it takes infinitely much time to reach the other end.

There is no evidence that physical infinities exist. There is also no evidence to suggest that an object must have a finite size. There is a strong possibility that the universe is spatially infinite.
7. infinity is simply a relation of ideas, mathematical ideas presume 'if, infinity exists, then x'.
