Infinitithes?

SI 1 Infinitithe 1-10 Leminiscate

1 Centimetre 1-10 Two

Is this allowed?

One of the numbers from Zero to One is Pi only 0.141592... instead of 3.141592...

Perhaps you are talking about numbers mod 1, e.g., as discussed

Yeah I guess you're right, but primarily what I'm asking is, are Infinitithes real or did I just make them up?

One of the numbers from Zero to One is Phi only 0.618033... instead of 1.618033...
One of the numbers from Zero to One is Euler's Number only 0.718281... instead of 2.718281...

All Irrational Numbers basically

I'm sorry, I don't quite understand your answer. My question is, has Infinity ever been considered as a fraction (not including recurring)? I would understand a yes or no as an answer.

I can see why you would send me those pages though, as they are similar to the topic.

You'll need to define what you mean by "infinity" and "fraction" first. "Fraction" is pretty-well understood in math, but there are some subtleties that I think are worth clearing up in this case. "Infinity", on the other hand, can refer to any of dozens or even hundreds of different meanings, and without clarification I can't say anything useful here.

Here are examples of questions which you might be asking:
  • Is $\aleph_0$ a rational number?
  • Is division defined for the extended real number $+\infty$?
  • Is there some sense in which cardinals like $\epsilon_0$ be divided?
  • Does $\mathbb{R}P^1(1)$ (the field induced by the projective reals) exist?
  • Which surreal numbers are (multiplicatively) invertible?
