“D2: That thing is said to be finite in its own kind that can be limited by another of the same nature

For example, a body is called finite because we always conceive another that is greater. Thus a thought is limited by another thought. But a body is not limited by a thought nor a thought by a body”

Ethics by Spinoza

Why is it wrong

to compare

two things

of a different

kind

if both things

can be translated

into mathematical

representations?

How could

a thought be 50

while a body is 75?

How would the rules

for the mathematical

representation

be determined?
