to infinity; without or seemingly without limit
"talked on and on ad infinitum"
Endlessly; for ever; neverendingly.
Origin: ad infinitum.
without limit; endlessly
Origin: [L., to infinity.]
Ad infinitum is a Latin phrase meaning "to infinity" or "forevermore". In context, it usually means "continue forever, without limit" and thus can be used to describe a non-terminating process, a non-terminating repeating process, or a set of instructions to be repeated "forever," among other uses. It may also be used in a manner similar to the Latin phrase "et cetera" to denote written words or a concept that continues for a lengthy period beyond what is shown. Examples include: ⁕"The sequence 1, 2, 3, ... continues ad infinitum." ⁕"The perimeter of a fractal may be iteratively drawn ad infinitum." ⁕The 17th century writer Jonathan Swift wrote lightheartedly the idea of self-similarity in natural philosophy with the following lines in his poem "On Poetry: A Rhapsody": ⁕The Victorian era mathematician Augustus De Morgan expanded on this with a similar verse: This text is part of the nursery rhyme The Siphonaptera.
It means endlessly, forever, never endingly. It is is synonymous with everlasting.

Sample Sentences & Example Usage
We hope this process will not be protracted ad infinitum.
he G & A Forum promotes gratitude and appreciation ad infinitum!
Do nothing for prosperity's sake. Rather, do everything you have to do for the sake of the posterity (all future generations ahead). Because, anything done for prosperity's sake does not last perpetually most times or rather it is not often impactful. But interestingly, whatever that is done for posterity's sake is ever impactful and will surely last perpetually. I mean, anything done for the sake of the posterity will surely be remembered and celebrated globally throughout the future generations ahead. Thus, do you have the gift of writing? If yes, then never write and publish for prosperity's sake. Instead, endeavour to write and publish for posterity. Note: anything written and published for posterity's sake will surely be read throughout the future generations ahead. In fact, I (personally) have been writing and publishing for posterity, I'm still writing and publishing for posterity and I will for life write and publish for posterity. Now, that's why the posterity in question will surely and eventually remember me and celebrate me too perpetually as a Great man, Writer, Motivator, Inspirator and Author by virtue of my thought-provoking quotes, insights, motivations, inspirations and my upcoming books. Oh! yes, my thought-provoking quotes, insights, motivations, inspirations and my upcoming books will surely be read, assimilated, shared, celebrated or criticized throughout the posterity ahead (all future generations) i.e. ad infinitum (endlessly, forever, never endingly). You can bet your bottom dollar. ~Emeasoba George
