I don't want a lot for Christmas
There is just one thing I need
I don't care about the presents
Underneath the Christmas tree
I just want you for my own
More than you could ever know
Make my wish come true
All I want for Christmas...
Is...
Youuuuuu

Shakespeare, mostly due to the higher exposure of him to the general public. For instance, at my public highschool we learned about Shakespeare, but I didn't know about Aquinas until college during my philosophy undergrad studies. With that said, I think Aquinas made a better contribution to theology, philosophy, and religion which I personally value higher than the literary and stage contributions of Shakespeare.

When you say "ask me anything," we can infer that it does not necessarily have to be something about you. So this is my question.

If an entity A is defined as having "necessary existence," then we can infer that:

~[]A --> []~A

[]~A, by modal logic, can also be written as ~<>A. Now, let us rephrase the axiom:

~[]A --> ~<>A

So, from modus tollens, if A is merely *logically possible,* then A necessarily exists. The question:

Are there infinite logically possible entities with necessary existence?

~[]A --> ~<>A

So, from modus tollens, if A is merely *logically possible,* then A necessarily exists. The question:

Are there infinite logically possible entities with necessary existence?

I don't know, but I'd lean towards no simply because the axiom only covers one entity, not an infinite amount.
