Neddy Bate #27; ---- What is 'some value'? That's the issue, 'infinity' has no value, it's not a number! If you expect the canned answer of x/0= infinity, you won't hear it from me. Infinities belong in cartoon physics. If two point particles are bonded by an inverse square force, when in contact they would become inseparable. Where would all that binding energy come from? A particle at the center of the earth is weightless, i.e. no infinite gravitation. A black hole loses energy via polar jets, ditto, no infinite gravitational collapse. The problem seems to point to the definition of inverse square rules for forces within a continuum. The continuum conflicts with what the universe shows us, discreteness.
