'the unlimited paradox' - unlimited does not exist
can the unlimited limit itself? if not, it is not unlimited. if so, it is not unlimited.
thus, we can see by probing a few questions about what it means to be unlimited, that it does not really exist.
Can the unlimited limit itself?
Yes. By definition it can. This capability does not make it limited. After it limits itself, it would no longer be limited, but that doesn't change the fact that it was unlimited before hand. There is nothing in the definition of unlimited that makes it incapable of becoming no longer unlimited.
we've shown by a few questions we can negate the idea of 'the unlimited'
"if the unlimited could limit itself, it wouldn't be unlimited."
I've explained why this isn't the case. You have yet to rebut my point. You can't simply repeat yourself. Explain why that statement is true and why my reasoning is false.
I don't disagree that the it wouldn't be unlimited once it limits itself. That is obvious. However, that doesn't change the fact that it was unlimited once. I'm not completely sure what you mean by "the unlimited as an ever present infinite in time possibility." Whatever the case, we are arguing about the possibility of the unlimited in general, not a particular type of unlimited that can't stop being unlimited. That would indeed be impossible.
The bottom line is that Pro never demonstrated why the unlimited can't stop being unlimited. Vote Con.
