"How can one "grasp" mathematics, if they have not input EVERY number in existence (infinity) "
I have mentioned to you that there are imaginary numbers in mathematics which are used as symbols inorder to enable the mind to overstand.
For example, there is no number that can be found that is the square root of -1, therefore we use an imaginary number as a symbol.
In many math problems there are more than one solution, meaning more than one answer that will balance out the equation.
Mathematics is not as simple as you make it out to be, especially when you are dealing with higher level mathematics.
Some equations have no answer, so they create one (imaginary numbers)
"SO WE CANNOT IN REALITY GRASP "ANYTHING", right?"
Yes, we can grasp plenty of things, we just can grasp EVERYTHING.
"one thing that is absolute is the inability to grasp absolution"
That is a non sequitur ( a logical fallacy).
I would change it to:
"The one thing that is absolute is the inability to grasp absolute TRUTH."
