However, within the study of geometry including hyperbolic geometry especially, infinity has been largely a still-available tool, separable into typological sets such as 'extended' vs. 'closed' (looping) vs. contingent (extruding). So, in my view, infinity is not dead, its just more about geometry and limitation than people first thought.
Consider, for example, that although an infinitely extended figure may appear different from the side, if it is finite in width, then it may still be seen in finite form. Therefore, the only total limit on perceiving the infinite is if the infinite is absolutely infinite. Otherwise, there may be ways to know definitions or aspects about it. This may be important.
