The Word Is Not The World

We can't use language to describe "the all".

Stated as baldly, this looks rather Zen, doesn't it?

The point being that language goes about defining particulars, i.e. "is this, is not that", and thus chips its way away from "the all".

In number theory terms, it's the difference between infinity and very large; of a limit, and test values that tend towards that limit.
