Jesus Bones – “The concept of Supreme Being is like that of the greatest possible integer, there is always one greater.”
Actually a reasonable definition of “Supreme Being” would indicate the infinitude of Singularity. Not the pseudo infinitude of an infinite set.
Maybe you can help me here. I suspect that there is a different term indicating “infinitude” as both potentiality and as all inclusive aggregate.
Or, did I get it right with “Singularity”?
Jesus Bones – “If by the assertion that, ‘infinitude of singularity’ you are saying ‘Supreme Being’ is a ‘Distinct Infinity’ perhaps, but the problem it seems, is a singularity is undefinable. I must ask what do you mean by ‘pseudo infinitude’? Do mean some kind quasi infinity such as an Infinite loop or some type of Strang loop?
Do not know what you have in mind with this idea ::Maybe you can help me here. I suspect that there is a different term indicating ‘infinitude’ as both potentiality and as all inclusive aggregate::
The Singularity idea is interesting
Thanks for your thoughts”
Jesus Bones – “To me the word ‘God’ is worthless, having so many meanings to so many people!? The concept of Supreme Being is like that of the greatest possible integer, there is always one greater.”
The so many meanings of God thing, is inevitable. A limitation of our vantage point.
Illustrated by your own comparison to the next bigger integer.
That type of infinity which allows something outside of it’s “set”, is not a reasonable approximation of the nature of a “Supreme Being”. So a step deeper into the nature of Infinitude is suggested.
This being the primordial cause as well as the summation of all effect.
The term “Singularity” seems to be useful up to a point. But like you say, it may be undefinable. (at least if the above does not qualify)
More the realm of intuition and direct awareness.
I am most interested in how Scientists and Mathematicians handle this. (Though my being neither, it will have to be dumbed down some, I suppose.)
