Infinite sequences: Finitist consequence

Abstract
A simultaneous collision that produces paradoxical indeterminism (involving N0 hypothetical particles in a classical three-dimensional Euclidean space) is described in Section 2. By showing that a similar paradox occurs with long-range forces between hypothetical particles, in Section 3, the underlying cause is seen to be that collections of such objects are assumed to have no intrinsic ordering. The resolution of allowing only finite numbers of particles is defended (as being the least ad hoc) by looking at both -sequences (in the context of a very basic supertask, in Section 4) and *-sequences (reversed -sequences, in the form of paradoxical results from the recent literature). Introduction The simultaneous collision The paradox in other contexts The basic problem is N0 things The recent literature Generating N0 things.
