Nominalization is a useful feature of English and many other languages. It turns verbs into nouns.
But, the context of the discussion I pulled this from, I was arguing that an eternal platonic comparison is not possible, as comparison is an action and actions need time to operate.
In the platonic realm of Forms, there is no change, no time, no action. Standard logic and much of mathematics operates in this realm, ignoring the computation effort and time required to solve.
So, an “eternal comparison” is not possible.
