    Auryn!

    this is okay, but two interlocking rings doesn't seem nearly as interesting as a kline bottle or mobius strip.

    HOW DARE YOU QUESTION THE POWER OF THE AURYN!
    Only a minion of The Nothing would speak such things... (oVo)

    Double ∞ Ouroboros > Mobius Strip + Klein bottle

    The difference between the AURYN and your creation is that AURYN is a continuous object. As the snakes consume one another they will slowly approach the zero point of vanishing, however you will never approach zero, therefore the process is infinite. Your object is two interlocking rings, neither of which is based upon each other.

    Refer to me not as a minion of the nothing, for I know the AURYN, and know the reference. I'm simply pointing out the difference between a continuous surface, an infinite surface, and your graphic.

    He's right, buddy. Your rings aren't touching. It's just like two spinning rings interlocking. Infinity is supposed to be represented by one thing that goes on constantly. Yours is possibly like two infinities, which makes no sense, unless your maybe referring to parallel universes, but even so, it's likely that a universe isn't infinite anyway.

    FOOLS! You make unsupportable claims! Unless you can see beyond the front of the above animated gif, you can't assume that it is a pair of interlocking rings! You minions are very crafty... but I will not be taken in by your shenanigans!
