Understanding Infinity

The concept of infinity; limitless or endless in space, extent, or size; impossible to measure or calculate.

We search for that which is just out of our reach. The constant flow never ends or does it eventually, and we are just not capable of seeing it occur? That moment we believe we understand the word infinity, have we only just begun to conceive that there are things much bigger, much more significant than we can comprehend with our feeble minds?

I wonder if those that first attempted to explain infinity would think of those things that have been discovered since. Space and its many planets, stars, galaxies far out of reach for any living being here on earth. Or will future generations ponder how limited we were in our exploration?

The exploration of infinity until we no longer are, or do we continue on in a way that we simply don’t understand? The concept itself will never be fully understood because, in its understanding, it would defy the basic principle of its impossibility to measure or calculate. I did ponder that infinite wisdom comes to those willing to let go and explore past what they know. They will never reach infinity, but they will have learned more than if they did not dare to let go and explore as far as their lives allow them to.

Raissa Urdiales
Raissa lived most of her life along the shores of Lake Michigan in Wisconsin. She currently lives in the quiet city of Tega Cay, South Carolina, just across the border from the very active art community of Charlotte, North Carolina. Raissa has not always considered herself as an artist. She spent a great portion of her adult life staring into computer screens and managing computer system implementations and upgrades in the traditional corporate setting. It was through a chance paint night that she discovered her passion for painting. On her 51st birthday, she treated herself to some acrylic paints and brushes and has not stopped painting since. She balances her passion for creating with her day job as a systems analyst. In the wee hours of the morning, you will find her painting before she immerses herself in the technology that is consuming the world today. Although Raissa does not have formal training in the arts she is very conscious of the benefits it has on the human psyche. She holds a Bachelor's of Science majoring in Psychology where she focused her studies on Organizational Psychology. Through her corporate career, she has learned how to strike a balance between that which provides monetary reward and that which fulfills us as humans. For her, this balance is obtained through painting, writing, and exercise. She is currently a member of the Guild of Charlotte Artists where she exhibits select pieces during the quarterly art shows in and around the Charlotte Metropolitan Area. She has also submitted and is featured regularly in the Light Space & Time online gallery. When she is not painting or working with computer systems, she is writing. She currently has a column with BIZCATALYST 360° named “Artful Being” where she writes on topics both in and out of her corporate life to help others gain balance on what it is to be human.
