No, seriously, the question is, do boundaries imply an unbounded?

Boundaries imply, at the least, our ability to imagine the definition of unboundedness. Next, our willingness to consider the possibility of unboundedness. Perhaps they also imply the _actual_ possibility of unboundedness. Beyond that, I would say that I can see only boundaries, but of so many different types that they form a class of "boundedness" that implies its opposite pole of "unboundedness," being that we exist in a world that is not absolute.

What do you see as the essential difference between those first three implications? And why would the existence of a class imply an opposite to that class if the world is not absolute?
