Liberating Matter

When I was about eleven years old I use to think that if you can break something in half, then in half again, and so on, you could do so indefinitely—for infinity?

If things could get infinitely small, I wondered, couldn’t things also get infinitely big? Of course, I would later learn that such infinite and successive divisions or increases in number were as much a philosophical matter as it was a theoretical mathematical one—no one knows because it’s impossible to demonstrate these polar opposite theoretical possibilities in physical reality.
