# Exploring Infinities: The Work of Mathematician Georg Cantor

TLDR Mathematician Georg Cantor's work in set theory demonstrates that there are infinities larger than other infinities. Through concepts such as one-to-one correspondence and the diagonal proof method, Cantor showed that the set of real numbers is larger than the set of natural numbers, proving the existence of an infinity larger than infinity.

The host aims to prove that there are infinities larger than other infinities, starting with the work of mathematician Georg Cantor and his creation of set theory.

In set theory, there is a one-to-one correspondence between sets of different sizes, including infinite sets such as the set of natural numbers.

An infinite number of people can be accommodated in an infinite number of rooms by having everyone move to a room that is twice the number of the room they were previously in, and subtracting a set of infinite size from another infinite set doesn't change the original set.

The set of all fractions is equal to the set of natural numbers, which is countably infinite, and the set of natural numbers is equal to the set of real numbers, which is also countably infinite.

The diagonal proof method showed that the set of real numbers is larger than the set of natural numbers, proving that there is an infinity larger than infinity.

The continuum hypothesis states that there are no infinite sets between alif zero and alif one in size, but it has never been proven.
