In order to understand this question, it is important to first note what is meant by "infinite," as we have above noted with regard to "potentia."

"Infinite" comes from "in" with is a negation, i.e., "without," and "finite," i.e., some sort of "form" or "limitation" or "bound."

Here, we can see that "infinite" can be taken in two senses. First, something may be "infinite" due to some lack of determination, e.g., someone who is said to be "directionless" is said to be "infinite" since he has not determined himself to any one end.
