No. Any number that can be reached by counting or by representation of a number, even followed by billions of zeros, is a finite number. Infinite numbers are defined as being unbounded, or without limit.

no because infinity in the definition is endless. So you cannot count to infinity even if you live infinitely because both the numbers and your life would be endless
