The Infinity Book is a publication that explores infinity—as a concept and a reality—and our universal relationship to it.
My name is Eric Gorvin and I created The Infinity Project. Infinity struck me as a concept that no one gives much thought to, and I thought that was something that needed fixing. So, I spent the last year compiling a book on Infinity. The Infinity Book includes readings from some of the most profound philosophers, artists, mathematicians, and thinkers coming from the fringe of recorded history to our present day, as well as my own observations, reflections, and opinions. This Kickstarter was made in an effort to self-publish this book and get it into the hands of the people (you). I hope we can accomplish this together.
Beyond the book...
I recorded and produced an album of music for the project and did a number of different explorations in video, drawing, photography, and sound. For the next 4 weeks I will provide updates, articulating what this entails. Every Friday I will post a new video so be sure to come back and check up on the page!

Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
The only risk or challenge I can foresee is if the project gets too big and I need to find a different print-house to make the book (due to quantity restrictions). This would in turn delay the shipping process slightly. Other than that, we're set to sail!
