Though Archimedes and Galileo both write about the concept of infinity, we owe the symbol to someone perhaps lesser-known.
The person who actually introduced the infinity symbol was John Wallis in 1655. This symbol is sometimes called the Lemniscate. It is a symbol that evolved a little bit from the Etruscan numeral for 1000 which looked like 2 letter Cs facing each other with an "I" in the middle (CIƆ). There is another theory that he actually derived the infinity symbol from omega (ω), the last letter of the Greek alphabet. (Ancient Symbols)
Over the last few hundred years, the infinity symbol has come to mean different things to different groups of people. If your loved one was a member of one of these groups, memorializing them with a meaningful infinity urn could be the right choice.
In one sense, infinity is a difficult mathematical concept to grasp. While we understand the concept in general—it represents limitlessness or boundlessness—those who actually deal with infinity as a mathematical concept are working with formulas in which "normal numbers" don't work. For those of us who never studied higher maths, it's hard to imagine the practical applications of such computations. For those working at the highest mathematical levels, however, it all makes perfect sense.
If your loved one enjoyed math, seemed to deeply understand its core principles, and/or worked mathematically on the highest levels, choosing a meaningful infinity urn as their final resting place is a good way to honor that aspect of their personhood.
The Celtic "Trinity Knot" symbolizes eternal spiritual life. Like all Celtic knots, it is made with one continuous line that interweaves around itself, echoing the infinity symbol. Dating back to the 9th-century Book of Kells and echoed in 11th-century monasteries, its historic connection holds special significance for those of Irish descent.
If your loved one prized their Irish heritage, perhaps a meaningful infinity symbol urn could be one way to represent that.
The infinity symbol holds a deep significance in religion, spirituality, and meditation. Infinity is mentioned in Christianity, Daoism, Sanatan Dharma (Hinduism), Buddhism, and many other faith traditions. Meanwhile, in meditation, the infinity symbol evokes balance, focus, harmony, peace, and oneness.
If your loved one held strong religious convictions or devoted themselves to fostering spiritual growth, perhaps a meaningful infinity urn would be the right choice for their final resting place.
