Notice to all users of the Holodeck:

There are safety protocols in place that cannot be deactivated without the approval of two commanding officers or the captain to protect users of the Holodeck from potential harm. However, every time the Holodeck is ever used in a nontrivial manner, no matter what the safety protocols say, the Holodeck turns into a deathtrap.

Unless you believe yourself to be adept at constructing a forcefield from your communicator and 19th century Earth tools, or you're at the very least not wearing a red shirt, you are strongly advised not to attempt to use the Holodeck until a designer comes up with a safety protocol that doesn't kill you whenever somebody looks at it funny. Even when you're not on the holodeck. Or in the same quadrant. Or time period.

In fact, if you are wearing a red shirt, Starfleet may not be the job for you

Transitive property of cats

The transitive property states that in a set of elements, if an element has a certain relation to a second element, which has the same relation to a third, then the first has the same relation to the third. This can be extended infinitely for an infinite set. For example: a > b, b > c, therefore, a > c

The reflexive property states that an element always has the same relation to itself. That is to say, a = a.

Meow, let's apply this to cats:

If your hand lies on top of a cat, by the reflexive rule, your hand still lies on top of the cat. Applying velocity to your hand, as long as it remains on the cat, then your hand is still on the cat, which is to say, petting a cat is possible as long as it is on top of the cat.

If your hand lies on top of a cat, and that cat lies on top of another cat, by the transitive property, your hand lies on both cats. Therefore, petting the first cat implies that you are petting the second cat as well. As stated ealier, the transitive property can be applied infinitely for an infinite set. Therefore, if you have an infinite stack of cats, petting the topmost cat will give you infinite pleasure, as long as you like petting cats.

Then again, an just seeing an infinite stack of cats may be enough. So cute!

Heee larious
