ABSTRACT
The article discusses the relationship between the visible and the intelligible and relates the connection between that of number and thought. It explains the unity-in-multiplicity of numbers and points out to intelligence as a kind of seeing. In geometry, points and lines defy description but people see the ideas they represent with diagrams and images. People do not see the geometrical thing itself, but rather the mind sees its nature and the theorems and propositions that flow out of it. It argues that number gives shape and meaning to thought.
