No. Counterexample: The potentially infinite sequence of 1's is given by many finite formulas like 1/9 or "0.111..." or "the potentially infinite sequence of 1's behind the point", which are not the sequence but determine the sequence: The finite formulas allow to calculate every digit and the limit, if existing.

In potential infinity there is nothing infinite finished. There is no list of all finite formulas, there is no list of all sequences.

What kind of contradiction are you alluding to? Potential infinity is unfinished infinity. That is not a very new aspect.
