One would naturally think that, for any time in the future (and similarly, for any point in space, any collection in a hierarchy of collections and so forth), either it is the nth day from now, for some natural number n, or it is infinitely far into the future, so that an infinite future might be divided into the finitely and the infinitely remote, the former region being infinitely many (i.e. aleph-null) days long since otherwise there would be no nth day for some n. But maybe it is not the case that, for any time in the future, it is either the nth day (for some n) or not.
......If it was an nth day, for some n, it would be so objectively; but maybe that property, of being an nth day for some n, is sufficiently like an indefinite property (as a consequence of the endlessness of the natural number sequence, not because of anything fuzzy about units, additions or repetitions, nor because of anything specifically temporal) for it not to follow that an arbitrary future time would either be an nth day (for some n) or not. (Such a possibility is indicated by how the natural assumption, of aleph-null, leaves us with a proper class of such cardinal numbers.)
