comment Is music really infinite?
I'll start with this simple argument: For each natural number n there is a piece of music where you play middle C n times. Each n results in a different piece, so there are infinitely many pieces. QED

comment What does it mean to be able to write a fugue?
We had to write short 3-voice fugues like every week in a theory class. And it was a course everyone (instrumentalists, singers, theorists, ...) had to take. There is no need to be a genius to write a mediocre fugue at least.

comment Debussy: Reflets dans l'eau: Rhythm Ambiguity
Well, it says "Quasi cadenza" (and also stringendo) a copule bars before that, so it's probably intended to be quite free anyway. Then "Mesuré" would indicate returning back to stricter tempo. I would end the cadenza with a small slow-down, it's also almost required to prepare for ppp.

comment Do some measures get no numbers, in an opera score?
I think copyright laws usually permit publishing small parts in cases like this (research, review, criticism, education, ...) so maybe you could re-consider posting an image?
