That doesn't even ... what? I don't...

OH, OK. Gotcha.

OP, if infinity was proved stable, it would be disastrous. Dividing by zero would then be able to produce a definite number - this hypothetical number would be completely outside of our existing numeral system, causing total breakdown of the natural numbers and allowing us to convert 1 into 2 directly, et cetera.

This would have revolutionary implications for everyday life - imagine being able to condense 1,000 tons of nuclear waste into just 1, or converting U-238 directly into U-235, or being able to launch spacecraft just by proving that being 100 inches off the ground is equivalent to being 100 miles up! Not to mention the benefits of being able to take the Axiom of Choice mechanically, allowing Banach-Tarski razors to perfectly duplicate objects.
