Allow me to remark that the reality and the absolute principles of the integers appear to be much stronger than those of the world of sensations. And this fact has precisely one very simple reason, namely that the integers separately as well as in their actually infinite totality exist as eternal ideas in intellectu Divino in the highest degree of reality.
[Cantor to Hermite, 30 Nov. 1895]
