The word finite refers to separation. Without it there would be nothing intelligible. But this very intelligence... in it there is a pattern that includes the idea of the infinite... the unbounded... lack of separation.
So when I apprehend an object, I see that it has extension in space which I can't conceive of as finite (except relative to the object.) But even as space relates to the object... I conceive of space as infinitely divisible.
The pattern of intelligence contains contradiction... intelligence depends on contradiction. So whatever a thought refers to... it must be contradictory if it corresponds to the thought.
Thought is the thing that hops back and forth from one foot to the other. The thing referred to by thought... it is neither/both.
That word FIN crops up in our language almost as much as form... Define, refine, finite, infinite... In my short spell at university, before my money ran out, I had a professor who several times told a story of two men on a train... One said, looking out the window: Do you see those Brown Cows??? The other said: I do, and they are brown, at least on this side... We apply some trust to all objects to say what they are on the far side, and to say reality does not change out of our sight, that is, to say the color of every cow is the same on both sides... Our problem is not with small physical objects, but with our forms themselves which if examined in detail are found to be infinite moral forms, and much of our lives are consumed with focus on these forms which can never be made finite or clear... In my world, which is the moral world, the world in which the physical world resides and makes sense, -nothing can be said to make sense or be true... For Example, what is truth if we should manage with our behavior to destroy the ability of the earth to support our lives and we die... What is truth if we should over populate to such an extent that we spiral into a dark age and know only war, disease, poverty and misery and that is our legacy??? Truth is a meaning that is only as meaning-ful as the good that comes out of it, and no good is coming out of our commonly accepted views of truth...
I don't need God as an infinite defined by infinite moral forms skuzzzing up the gears of reason with some huge greazy omni-hairballs to recognize the fix we are in short term in a finite sense... But, it is a mountain we must move... The economy which is destorying the environment is supported by the religion and both have a long history of respect in metaphysics and law... Great change is needed, but we hardly have the language and consideration for small changes...
