Paradox of Money

Is this the same:

A. If you are infinitely rich and lost the perfect 100 % of your money, how can you remain infinitely rich?

B. If you are infinitely rich and lost all your money, how can you remain infinitely rich?

What if you only lost some of your money? Would you still be infinitely rich? What is half of an infinite amount?

There is no evidence of a physical infinity so the op makes no sense.

Rich people get rich, because others get poor

There is a continuous money flow from poor to rich men

Losing (all) money is just a momentum, those wo are infinitely rich keep amassing

The USA has the printer. It produces the money.

If you've lost all your money you were never infinitely rich.

All of this seems vaguely familiar.

it's deja vu all over again.

Yes, but there is something new. Is 100 % all money or not?

I don't recall exactly what was said in the previous thread on this topic, but I think I may have been wondering about the phrase "infinitely rich." Regardless if someone loses all their money, 100% of it, they can not be "infinitely rich." Unless they owned the entire universe, although I don't see how that's possible.

I suppose if you're speaking of some sort of deity or god who could be said to be the owner of the universe, then perhaps on those terms, "wealth" might be measured in different terms than actual "money" that we primitive mortal humans use. When you refer to that which is "infinite," are you referring to God or something spiritual?
