Like a collection of poems with an underlying mystical theme, this dissertation is a kaleidoscope puzzle of images and thoghts and concepts and ideas taken from mysticism, science, logic, and mathematics. Tthis treatise on infinity is the result of two mystical experiences of the author, the first in February 1950 and the second fourteenyears later in ovember 1964.These experiences were more real to him that with God. For him they came from the future as a glimpse of mankind`s potential destiny. His thesis is an attempt to point out a path that makes the yet to be discovered universe viable.
