Oh, no, Bob, it is also certain that a genooine understanding of trig, calculus, counting numbers, engineering and computer science will require a foundational knowledge of infinity, for example, why 1+2+3+4+ ...  =   -1/12    ;-)  
Hardy saw this in the notes of Ramanujan (“The Man Who Knew Infinity” book and movie) and was convinced from this and other things that he was not a quack, but a genius. This and other wacky equations are used in physics (theoretical abstract?)

Besides, "forever" is longer than a very long time.
