I thought they we're deliberately obtuse. Now with what was posted below I know deliberation is beyond them.

LOL. I never heard that one before.

In a closed system, the "pie" has to be finite. In an open system, things can come in and go out and new things and their combinations can occur so the "pie" can present the illusion of being infinite. "Infinite" is a label for more than any fixed "finite" so it is just a concept, never real.

This is what prompted the troll's brilliant explanation of infinite possibility:

"It's not about anyone's success or failure. It's about how to divide a pie so everyone has more than average. It's about a very simple concept that you won't understand. The thing that has you stumped is that the whole is equal to the sum of the parts. If one has a greater share of the pie another must have less. That's a mathematical certainty. Why can't you understand that?

"Of course I know that you are not being deliberately obtuse. You sincerely believe in perpetual motion. So I won't waste any more time responding to your childish shit. It's been entertaining but now your stubborn stupidity is beginning to bore me."
