Unboundedness: The state of lacking any boundary or limit.

Unboundedness is not at all the same property as ►infinity. For example, the set of all fractions between 0 and 1 is limited but infinite. Conversely, the surface of a sphere with finite dimensions is finite but does not have a boundary or limit.

Infinite and unbounded
