Who was the first to conceive of true infiniteness?

“The invisible excludes nothing, the invisible that excludes nothing is the infinite – the soul of INDIA is the infinite.”

“Philosophers tell us that the INDIANS were the first ones to conceive of a true infinite from which nothing is excluded. The West shied away from this notion.... The West likes form, boundaries that distinguish and demarcate. The trouble is that boundaries also imprison – they restrict and confine.”

“ India saw this clearly and turned her face to that which has no boundary or whatever.”

“INDIA anchored her soul in the infinite seeing the things of the world as masks of the infinite assumes – there can be no end to these masks, of course. If they express a true infinity.”

While the West was still thinking, perhaps, of 6,000 years old universe – INDIA was already envisioning ages and eons and galaxies as numerous as the SANDS OF THE GANGES. The Universe so vast that modern astronomy slips into its folds without a ripple.”

- Huston Smith on India. [ A philosopher, most eloquent writer, world-famous religion scholar who practices Hatha Yoga ]
