Help! I need help understanding a mathematical (I think) problem that I am having an amazingly hard time getting my head around. Let’s dig in.

- I know that ‘infinity’ is endless. It cannot increase, nor can it decrease.
- I know that the number 1 exists, because I can imperially prove that it is possible for one of something, such as an apple, to exist.
- I know that between any two numbers (1, 2, 3, etc.), there are an infinite number of other numbers.

Knowing the above information, my question is very, very simple:

**When and how does 1 become 2?**

I know that 1 __does__ become 2, because I can take one apple, add another, and I will have two apples. This seems, to me at least, to fly in the face of the fact that between 1 and 2 are an infinite number of numbers, meaning that I can never actually arrive at 2. I just don’t understand how these two things coexist. If anyone out there can educate me or point me in the right, direction, I’d be very appreciative!

I’m lookin’ at you edwardspoonhands…
