 Infinite Empire - Katarnipedia   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-07)
The Infinite Empire, the first known government in the galaxy, was founded by the Rakata, a scientifically advanced species that used their knowledge to conquer and enslave other species throughout the known Galaxy.
The Empire rose to new heights when in approximately 49,000 BBY, they made use of their potent dark side powers to form technologies for the Infinite Empire, which dominated known space for thousands of years and enslaved numerous developing species including the Duros, Selkath and Humans.
Due to the limitations of the Rakatan hyperdrive technology, the Infinite Empire consisted of only 500 worlds, but they were scattered far and wide over the entire length of the known galaxy.

  Weekly Worker 420 Thursday February 21 2002   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-07)
Empire ends by talking of the role of the militant in “positive, constructive and innovative activity” and the “irrepressible lightness and joy of being communist” (p413).
On the one hand, Empire is replete with an analysis of the various forms of governmentally, bio-power (Foucault’s concept of the management of populations), postmodern, flexible accumulation, and the inexorable expansion of “networks”.
For, “Empire creates a greater potential for revolution than did the modern regimes of power because it presents, alongside the machine of command, with an alternative: the set of all the exploited and the subjugated that is directly opposed to Empire with no mediation between them” (p293).

The Infinite Empire collapsed due to both a long civil war and a virulent plague that affected only the Rakata some 28,000 years prior to the Battle of Yavin.
Thus, the empire was lost to history until the events of the Jedi Civil War, when Revan and Malak discovered Rakatan Star Maps leading to Rakata Prime and the Star Forge.

 NationMaster - Encyclopedia: Continuous signal   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-07)
One school of thought is a finite (or infinite) duration signal may or may not be finite valued.
However, the second and possibly more prevalent school of thought is that infinity is not a limit and hence, a continuous signal must always have a finite value.
Discrete signal, used in digital signal processing, can be obtained by sampling of continuous signals using a sampling function (usually a train of time-shifted impulses of the dirac delta function).

 Infinite War
Early justifications of the empire, especially at a time when the Spanish sovereign was also Holy Roman Emperor, presented it as something like a mission on behalf of the Christian world order, based on donation from the pope in the form of papal Bulls.
For Grotius, writing on behalf of the Dutch commercial empire, in which the principal issue was commercial rivalry among trading nations vying for supremacy in international commerce, it really was a question of 'international relations', including the issue of war and peace among states.
This is a conception of empire that is not simply about establishing imperial rule or even commercial supremacy but about extending the logic and the imperatives of the domestic economy and drawing others into its orbit.

 The Kalam Cosmological Argument Yet Again: The Question of the Metaphysical Possibility of an Infinite Temporal Series
Thus every so-called surd infinite of past events, to which additional members are added, itself consists of finite segments each of which has been successively formed.[34] This is the case because every past event in every temporal series has been preceded by another past event.
With respect to any set of infinitely past years terminating in the present or some past year, it is always true that there was never a time that there was an infinite to be traversed in order to reach the present or any past year.
An infinite temporal series, just as any other real infinite, is never completed but always complete, in the sense that it does not involve a necessarily-always-finite set which never can be completed so as to be an infinite set by the addition of members.

 Jacques Ranciere: Prisoners of the Infinite
It's justice that ignores all of the categories by which its practice is traditionally circumscribed: distinguishing legal punishment from the vengeance of individuals; separating the law from politics, ethics or religion; separating police forms by which criminals are hunted down from the military forms by which armies engage in battle.
But 'infinite justice' is not only the answer to the adversary's provocation, thus being compelled to share the same field as him.
In the 1990's, the undoing of the Soviet empire and the weakening of social movements in major Western countries were usually celebrated as utopias being liquidated from real and social democracy to the benefit of the rules of the State of Right.

 Empire of the infinite | By genre | Guardian Unlimited Books
What Roth seems to have loved about the Empire, that it imposed a uniformity on so many different peoples, is also seen in his books as a kind of tyranny, almost a totalitarianism, so that Roth and Kafka have more in common than might at first seem to be the case.
His identification with the Empire, though it became excessively nostalgic, had no complacency about it, because it issued not from comfort but from what seems a kind of desperation.
He is a simple, loyal subject of the Empire, who unquestioningly believes that the government will provide him with a pension and a small job for life.

 Baruch Spinoza (Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy)
Or, as he puts it, from God's infinite power or nature "all things have necessarily flowed, or always followed, by the same necessity and in the same way as from the nature of a triangle it follows, from eternity and to eternity, that its three angles are equal to two right angles" (Ip17s1).
Every bodily event is part of an infinite causal series of bodily events and is determined only by the nature of extension and its laws, in conjunction with its relations to other extended bodies.
Any idea is an integral part of an infinite series of ideas and is determined by the nature of thought and its laws, along with its relations to other ideas.

 Arundhati Roy: Confronting Empire, Passionately
It was clear to anyone who read the essays that the woman who had composed that lyrical first novel had found it in her to write polemical prose that somehow managed to be poetic as well as outspoken and passionate as well as provocative.
The centerpiece of An Ordinary Person's Guide to Empire is titled, simply and allusively, "come September." In this lecture-essay delivered in Santa Fe, USA, almost a year after '9/11,' Roy identifies her primary theme: "the relationship between power and powerlessness and the endless, circular conflict they're engaged in" (14).
Even empires as overwhelming as the current American one, or a project as insidious as that of "corporate globalization" she declares, can be confronted.

Shrivijaya and its eighth- and ninth-century rulers, the Shailendra dynasty, are known to us through inscriptions, but the history of this empire remains to be written.
Their art seems to owe some stylistic allegiance to India, as well as to earlier Southeast Asian styles, and it may have influenced the sculpture of southern Thailand and even that of the province of Yunnan in China.
Unusually large for the period and type, the sculpture is enlivened by gently swelling volumes and fine detailing.

 A Trace Of The Infinite Empire - Blades Edge RPG
The Infinite Empire, which was made up of aliens of Lycos' kind, used a vast majority of advanced computers that interconnected with the force.
These computers accomplished great deeds, such as constructing the fleet of Sith Revan, or creating the planet of Kashyyk, originally intended for agriculture, and then left alone when the Infinite Empire fell, spawning the lush forests the planet of the wookies is now known for.
How wonderful it must have been in the days of the Infinite Empire, when they would have bowed down to Lycos as slaves, as all races other then the Rakata themselves were.

Ironically, it was forced into adapting the infinite model after the British Free-trade tactics had made the nation bankrupt within the first decade of its existence.
The second time in history when the infinite model for economy was applied in America, or rather was allowed by the Empire to be applied again, occurred at the start of World War II which enabled the miraculous mobilization that was achieved.
This rededication to the infinite system of economy was allowed by the Empire only for a brief period, as a necessary means to save its own skin from the ravages of its creation, the murderous Nazi regime of Adolf Hitler.
