Is the "midpoint" between the sets of numbers approaching positive infinity and negative infinity definable as the set of countable numbers?

Is this a Markov chain trained with mathematical words?

I looked up "Markov chain." I believe that my statement may well be treated as such, although the formalism is new to me.

I must have missed the mathematical joke. My opening question was in good faith. I will try to take you seriously. Since approaching these infinities most likely requires the concept of a set, I thought of the largest set within them that may not include them but includes the median  the set of countable numbers.

Your response was classic...
