“You can divide infinity an infinite number of times, and the resulting pieces will still be infinitely large,” Uresh said in his odd Lenatti accent. “But if you divide a non-infinite number an infinite number of times the resulting pieces are non-infinitely small. Since they are non-infinitely small, but there are an infinite number of them, if you add them back together, their sum is infinite. This implies any number is, in fact, infinite.”
“Wow,” Elodin said after a long pause. He leveled a serious finger at the Lenatti man. “Uresh. Your next assignment is to have sex. If you do not know how to do this, see me after class.”
I recommend The Wise Man's Fear to anyone wanting to know what Fantasy is, why you should come back to the genre, and for any writers, to change what they think about Fantasy as a whole. I myself, was in the middle of re-reading The Name of the Wind, the first book of this series, just to re-clarify and re-analyze what I had missed.
Other than that, the week has been wonderously boring, to say. Haven't really been writing. Just reading and reading, and eating, and reading. No video games either. I have just been chilling. And you know what? Not writing at the moment is alright with me. Let my ideas be on the side for now. I'm on military leave. Let me relax and enjoy a book :)
