This has been talked about for like 15 years

there is no such thing as infinity and 0

according to math that is science does not grasp the concept of the void/Wu

and computers are all products of math

The numbers aren't infinite, if you graph them, a pattern emerges

the internet supposable cant contain more then 9 billion IP addresses there is approximately 7 billion people on the planet less then 4 billion are online so the numbers are still looking good

however take into account people who hold multiple IP a rough estament would put about 6 billion in use thats still only 2/3 used there fear is with growing population of people getting on line do to technological advancements around the world
some people may lose out to getting a place in cyber space how ever a more important threat come with population then that the world cannot feed more then 9 billion with current methods it kind of a apocalyptic problem and the prediction is a loss of about 60% of the population from the appending crises

but back to this IP crisis because it obviously more important then global starvation
the easiest way to fix this problem is increase the IP numbers to hold 90 billion that just one 0 more it will take about 1 hour of web shut down maybe less
we will probably lose about 90% of the wold population from this

oh when i say 9 or 90 billion that means 9,999,999,999 and 99,999,999,999

but all this is merely speculation of course

kinda like Y2K

and one more think this is equivalent to the social security number issue

9 number to 10 numbers would fix that problem to

it can run out cause the amount of digits are set, not cause 'infinity' doesn't exist, but this issue was solved a long time ago
