I see. So you reckon that it is faith on my part that a
decipherable component exists. Perhaps so. But the way I see it is that
when our minds reach the edge of understanding for a given field of
inquiry, they are able to postulate guesses and ways of testing them.
Science always trys to guess one of two mutually exclusive possibilities
and so the results of the testing will always move us further
foreward/upward by a finite amount.

I looked up "infinite" in the dictionary, It said "see infinity".
(thats always the way, I can never get a straight answer from a dictionary)
So then I looked up "infinity", it said "see infinite".
