Median between infinite sets

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.

He basically asked you if your question was produced by one of those cheap AIs that can produce somewhat realistic looking nonsense once trained with the proper vocabulary, in this case mathematical terms.

Your response was classic...
