Hello,
thanks for sharing this! Very interesting. I watched the original video and the whole 40 minute reply of Burkard Polster both of which are worth seeing. Incredible what can be deducted from such a simple summation. Between the lines it confirms two points that I have always defended in our weekly amateur astronomer's meetings:  There is no such thing as infinity in physics or engineering. If a (mathematical) equation yields infinity as result then it is the wrong equation to describe the problem.  String theory is just a paper excercise juggling with equations that has zero connection to reality. Regards Max
