My point is not about any kind of "specialness", *the same condition follows for any

so is his "view".
For QM, things are even more restrictive: one has to assume that the Hilbert space of
the wave function is *finite* and a choice of the basis of that space

?? A Hilbert space is an infinite dimensional vector space. Choosing a basis in only a
calculational convenience, like choosing a coordinate system. The choice has no effect on
any physics, just on how hard or easy some calculation is.
