The Human Entropy

I've recently discovered the Taoist view on infinity, and existence. (As It Was, so It Shall Be, Forever)
Tao Teh Ching, Ch. 42:
World: Infinity is oneness. Infinity is the potential of all things. All things are one with Infinity. Distinguishing creates the two. Wu: Tao gave birth to One, One gave birth to Two, Two gave birth to Three, Three gave birth to all the myriad things.
Personal Reinterpretation: First Came the 0, the nothing, the void, the creative potential, the dark (or absence of light?), then came the 1, the light, the pure, the undivided whole. The one was conscious, the zero was not. The one tried to add itself to the zero, and nothing happened, and it remained. Then the one tried to subtract itself from the zero. This created the negative or opposite. Yin and Yang are born here. -1 and 1.
Then the one divided into the void, into zero, into the darkness. What if the one were to divide itself by the zero? then infinity, and along with it all of the other numbers were created, including our existence.
