The New Hacker's Dictionary
[common] Consisting of a large number of objects; extreme. Used very loosely as in: “This program produces infinite garbage.” “He is an infinite loser.” The word most likely to follow infinite, though, is hair. (It has been pointed out that fractals are an excellent example of infinite hair.) These uses are abuses of the word's mathematical meaning. The term semi-infinite, denoting an immoderately large amount of some resource, is also heard. “This compiler is taking a semi-infinite amount of time to optimize my program.” See also semi.
An amount, being, human being, soul, spirit, consciousness, energy, light, frequency, natural resources, planet, universe, multiverse or possibility that can exist for infinity and change form where just and fair.

Or do our lights wander a lifeless cosmos, unseen beacons announcing that, here on one rock, the universe discovered its existence ? Either way, there is no better question. It's time to commit to finding the answer, to search for life beyond Earth. The Breakthrough initiatives are making that commitment. We are alive. We are intelligent. We must know.
