|You are trying to duck the problem some algorithms go on to infinity.
Some fractals never terminate they are designed to spit differences, they run until you turn them off they
are in every sense of the word infinite. You could also add machine learning AI, it never stops learning.
It does stuff in between time, termination is not a requirement of getting usable output.
At no point in either of these concepts do I need to specify a termination or need finite things.
You could claim they might run out of resources but that is also the case to the question as posed by the OP.
You are just applying a physical world restriction to bring in a terminate. However it's an algorithm long
before it ever terminated and as a concept it does run forever it would never end of it's own choice.
To me you are adding significance to infinity/finite which are just concepts. Abnormal or selected terminations
are just a byproduct of the real world, to the algorithm they can be meaningless.
I doubt we will agree on this stuff we are sort of differing around physical vs concept infinity.
You are wanting to take a much harder literal approach than I would in programming an algorithm.
All that ends up happening is things I will call an Algorithm you won't call that, you would call
it something else a process, a system or the like.
In vino veritas
