Size (The point)
 Title
 Size (The point)
 Description

Externally, the point may be defined as the smallest elementary form, but this definition is not exact. It is difficult to fix the exact limits of the concept "smallest form." The point can grow and cover the entire ground plane unnoticedthen, where would the boundary between point and plane be?
There are two considerations to be borne in mind here:
I. the relation of the size of the point to the size of the plane, and
2. the relative sizes of the point and of the other forms on this plane.
A form which, when on the otherwise empty basic plane, may still be considered to be a point, must be termed a plane when, for example, a very thin line appears with it upon the basic plane (See Figure).
The relation of sizes in the first and second case determines the conception of the point which, at present, can be tested on the basis of feeling onlysince we lack an exact numerical expression for it.  Designer
