It's not irrelevant to your setup of topological concerns vis-a-vis set-theoretic concerns, features in topology of the continuum here of real numbers.

Then, generally I can see how one might consider mathematical developments from axiomless theory as absurd, circular, or dada, but as of the roots of endeavor in reason, it is well known that paradox (counterexample, from formal statement) and its explanation and resolution is a framework for the development of mathematical tools, for example Zeno, vis-a-vis the (convergent) limit as sum, as of fact.

Then, for noting features of the geometry and topology about R and R^n, real vector spaces, the polydimensional construction of points is of their construction as elements of the space, as the space is of them.

Then here in terms of the 1-, 4-, and 9-intersections of R^1, R^2, R^3, and working toward uniformity of points in density and regularity of points in distribution, here the polydimensional then is as to the points that define the lines and shapes, for the shapes that define lines that define points.

Then, here for N.P.s introduction of n^2-intersections in R^n as to being points, and of constructing region in R^n bounded by these things, here it was a simple note that of the points and intersections, there are some noted features for the 1-D case that would well extend into R^n, here at less than n^2, and one can consider a framework for translation between these resuls.

And for Fred Jeffries work in the regular in distributions: those features are only noted as being salient, and here, furthermore: ripe.

So, that is just an idea: features of the continuum in the polydimensional as to working in counterexamples in analysis. And: whether the naturals are compact in their infinitude, and the following workup of definitions of finity and infinity for each other, is a serious question, for mathematics. Because: for the Platonist: they are those things.

Then, how does mathematics digest itself? Here it is as to the Ouroboros as lemniscate, simply descriptively, with the acknowledgment that that's all it is.
