Infinity

Infinity is annoying me. If some infinities are larger than other infinities then surely the first infinities would, by default, not be infinite as there is something bigger? Google provided possibly the worst definition in the history of man – “the state or quality of being infinite”. If you don’t know what infinite means, Google apparently doesn’t either so don’t fret. Is there a true infinity or did we just get lazy and use that word to refer to very, very large numbers or far away?
