Here’s a function in JavaScript:

const countUp = num =>{    console.log(`counting...${num}`);    countUp(num);
}
countUp(0);

Given that the function calls itself, we can instantly recognize that this code will cause an infinite loop which will log ‘counting …’ and the current number with each iteration. Yet this very concept — that a function can call itself — sits at the very heart of a recursive function. So what’s the idea here anyway?

Well, it’s important we understand why this code causes an infinite loop. In this case, the function body never changes. This results in the the line of code which…

I mean wouldn’t both think they are both experiencing reality?

Most of us think we are experiencing reality itself. We…
