Irrational Numbers such of Pi is a number that we didn't create it comes from nature and its irrational and in the decimal idea it never comes to an end, could this show there is no such as smallest, since Pi shows that the decimals in nature are neverending I can see this irrationality shows that each point in spacetime must be Infinitley small, and thus there is no smallest object as in a smallest size that you can have, as you peer further and view smaller points through a microscope, you'll see existence no matter how small you go, thus no matter how small you go there is no end to smaller objects, so you see if your shrunk yourself to an existence infinitely smaller which is possible according to this idea, the universe would appear infinite in size, so how do we know we aren't one of these existence forms that's infinitely small compared to an average sized object within the universe, does this say the universe is Infinite, not in relative to our size within it, but in relative to infinitely small forms of existence, so This is a new infinity it exists within a finite plain yet still exists, unless this Infinity already exists.

Pi is a mathematical concept, not a physical one. There is a mathematical notion called the continuum. However the question of whether or not spacetime is a continuum is an open question for physicists.

I believe, you can't (ab)use maths to generalize about the world the way you do. As far as I know, the universe expands at the speed of light. Something that is infinite large can't expand; the possibility it has to expand makes the original size definable, so finite. Are you sure you are on the correct forum with the question? i'd rather go to a phylosophy forum if I were you. Hoempa edit: Mathman gave about the same comment I think.

2) "this idea" does not change what was said in 1). ...but keep searching! Have you studied infinitesimals? That might be of interest to you.
