[&] There is No Universally Accepted Definition of a Mountain

There is no universally accepted definition of a mountain
The mountain is the first species of quantity
Which has only one dimension
Namely length
Without any width or depth
And is nothing else than the flow or run of the point which
Will leave from its imaginary moving some vestige in length
Exempt of any width
Breathless length
Unprovable properties
Circular in nature since mountains depend on concepts which must themselves have definitions
But the mountain is a primitive concept in that it is given no definition
Sometimes, authorities call a mountain a hill
