(It’s worth noting that by working in the infinite lattice size limit we can avoid lots of s and s; we can make our soft analysis definition a hard analysis definition if we like in the standard way.)

Sorry for my ignorance. In my opinion, the proof of the part (the infinite convergence principle implying the finite convergence principle) is imperfect. The compactness or completeness of the real line might as well be avoided, since the theorem, i.e, the monotone sequence of rational numbers on is Cauchy as well. The compactness of depends on that, I think.

Finally, I shall recall my real goal, which I have never forgot. The real goal is to pass from understanding of the power of this lambda calculus sector of graphic lambda calculus to the real deal, called “computing with space”, namely to understand space from a computational perspective, not as a given receptacle, but as a small list of procedures along with some impossible to verify assertions (like that we may rescale indefinitely space), see “emergent algebras”, which can always be eliminated a posteriori, by a kind of finitization procedure.
