How to Find Us: Go into this Del Taco. We will be in the back room if possible.

Parking is free in the lot out front or on the street nearby.

Discussion: We will gain some respect how big infinity is by learning about some things that are smaller than it. Then we will apply what we learned to two philosophical thought experiments.
