Infinity Symbol

Infinity Symbol

Welcome to the captivating world of the infinity symbol – that sleek, mesmerizing figure-eight that's been stirring curiosity and contemplation for centuries.

You might have seen it tattooed on a friend's arm or dangling from a necklace, but do you know where it comes from? The origins of the infinity symbol are somewhat elusive, as it has appeared in various forms and contexts throughout history. However, its modern usage can be traced back to the seventeenth century. The symbol was introduced by English mathematician John Wallis in 1655, who used it to represent the concept of an infinitely large number in his work on calculus and algebra.

The infinity symbol gained widespread recognition and adoption within the mathematical community due to its simplicity and versatility in representing concepts related to infinity, such as infinite sets, limits, and the infinite nature of the universe.

Beyond mathematics, the infinity symbol has also found its way into philosophy, where it is often associated with concepts such as eternal life, interconnectedness, and the cyclical nature of existence. In spiritual contexts, the symbol is sometimes used to represent the infinite and divine nature of the universe or the eternal bond between individuals.

When it comes to the comparison to the S thing, we are forced to ask ourselves again - Is the S thing 2D or 3D? 

If we believe that the S is 3D, a Möbius Strip, then it's also possible the infinity could be represented within the S thing inner white space as a looping figure. 

Is it the ORIGIN of the S? Unlikely. 

Does it have possible similarities in design? Yes. 

However you look at it, we hope the S lasts just as long as.....infinity.
