HPB wrote, on 171 of SD I, that the number of Monads are "almost
incalculable, they are still finite." On 303 of vol. II she used the
word "countless", but still limited. So there is no conflict between
limited & countless. The number of stars in this galaxy are countless,
yet still limited. The number of grains of sand on all our oceans'
beaches are countless, yet limited.

I do not mind stridency. You might consider pondering and investigating
a bit longer before responding though.
