The are numbers that are not Natural Numbers.
The number of Naturals Numbers is a number,
and it greater than any finite number, that is to say,
It is greater than any Natural Number.

Here, number means Cardinality, of course.

In most Mathematical circles the standard is ZF(C).
Yes, standard Set Theory is being questioned here.
And most who question it here have not come up with
a good reason to reject. Nor have they come up with
a suitable replacement.

Those ideas in Finitism are assumptions.
Although they may lead to consistent systems,
they are far less powerful than a system that assumes
an infinite set.

I can count head of cattle or stones with a Strictly Finite system.
However, it is very difficult to define a Surface Integral and
most likely impossible to prove FLT in any form of Finitism.
