In my prior post I had in mind "infinite series"... if an infinite series doesn't converge,
it cannot be reduced to an equation, which is the "solution" to which I was referring. What
you refer to with your "infinite number of solutions" (and which I totally-forgot to mention
in my prior post, because I've experienced "convergence" being relevant with respect to such,
except in numerical analysis, which, when one looks, is seen to be  infinite-series stuff)
are "equations"... and an "equation" is the =single= "solution" which maps all possible
correlations within a "defined field of numbers"... an "equation" is either such a =single=
"Solution", or it's nothing. Your "infinite number of solutions" is B. S. An infiniite number
of anything is "just" Infinity... without additional info, Infinity is equivalent to Nothing,
be-cause it gives exactly zero info on "where to look".

Kind of like what you've been posting to me, Mr. Robot Responder.

Ho, ho, ho :-)

If there's not =One Answer= there's =No= Convergence.

Ho, ho, ho... get thee before a mirror :-)

Yeah, Robot Responders can't Do Meaning-Stuff.

Robot Responder, can't you See that I didn't ask a question? Ho, ho, ho... "you" Can't See

Oh, Robot Responder, reach down and Pull-"your-Plug"... there're enough Jackasses in the
world without there being such a Pitiful Attempt at out-doing them on all accounts.

No, Dummy Responder... they, unlike "you", are Free to Choose.

Yeah, for the first "time" during the current online stint, I do so-claim. But Bozo
Responder, since you've been Falsely-Attributing that claim to me, you're not only a Jackass
and a Bozo, since you're obviously programmed to Deceive... you're also a Liar... Enemy of

I've backed it up, alright, you're just so Flat-Out Incapable you cannot even See what's
right before your serial port.

Ho, ho, ho... get thee before a mirror... er, Debugger... Bugs, Bugs, Bugs :-)

When you =Stop= your Murdering of Innocents.
