|Holz I 38
Language/Leibniz: it is important to understand that the number of the first sentences is infinite, for they are either definitions or axioms.
Finite/infinite/Leibniz: the set of possible objects of experience must be assumed to be infinite, because there ought to be a cause for reason why these should not be infinite, and there can be no such thing.
Language/infinite/finite/statement/fact/Leibniz: so there must be an infinite set of facts and correspondingly an infinite set of statements! (Factual truths). A finite mind, however, is incapable of reducing it to a finite set of identical sentences.
One never possesses a (full) proof, although there is always a reason for the truth. The reason can be fully understood by God alone.
