When working with conditions for numbers we have a notion of \[Infinity] representing larger than any other number and similarly -\[Infinity] representing smaller than any other number.

But when working with dates is there a similar notion of BeginningOfTime/StartOfTime representing larger than any other DateObject[...] or TimeObject[...] and EndOfTime representing smaller than any other DateObject[...] or TimeObject[...] in Wolfram language for working with time conditions?

Note it should work with all other builtin function like Min, Max, DateDifference, Greater, Less etc.
