        In the set [math]{0,1,2,infty}[math] with the ordering [math]<1<2<infty[math], the greatest number less than [math]infty[math], is 2.
        Or did you have another set and/or another ordering in mind?

          Basically you get to spam a googol (10^100) symbols, and the number is one bigger than any definition you can possibly come up with. Grahams Number, TREE function, Busy Beaver – all are possible to define in way fewer symbols than a googol, so you could nest billions of all of these functions together, and that’s still way smaller than the absolute theoretical maximum of a googol symbol definition of a number

      First up, there is no such thing as infinity. You might argue that its a conceptual construct, but so is the existence of flying pigs, with wings and shit. You can conjure them up in your imagination but they are no less unreal.

      Now, the biggest number in existence is MOAN. The Mother Of All Numbers. This number sits at the end of the number line. There is no number beyond it, so there is no point saying some scrotebrained shit like "MOAN + 1". Unless of course you are a scrotebrained shithead, in which case go for it, you scrotebrained shithead you.

      MOAN is by definition the largest number in existence. Its exact value will most likely never be known. But that is fine because we know it exists and we know it is finite. Indeed, the value of MOAN is also likely to be variable, depending on the nature of the Universe and its age, and upon the base units used to count. For example if new matter is coming into existence as the Universe expands ( as postulated by the Steady State Theory ) then MOAN will certainly increase over time. If the base unit is expressed as total subatomic particles in existence in the Universe then the value of MOAN will be quite smaller than if the Planck length was being used as the base unit instead.

      MOAN is indelibly tied to the physical reality of the Universe and not to some scrotegy fantasy dreamed up by homosexuals with infected arses.

      Although we may never know its exact value, one thing is certain. The value of MOAN is finite and it can not be exceeded. Just like GOD intended. Attempting to add anything to MOAN results in you sailing off the edge of reality and being devoured by hyperspatial sea monsters.

      This makes those GOD CURSED INFINITY LOVING SODOMITES very upset. And they will BURN in the DISCRETE fires of HELL for a very long but ultimately FINITE duration.

      Amen.

      from the unit infinity you can construct multiples of infinity, fractions of infinity, etc.
      so any real number n<1 times the unit infinity would be the "smaller than infinity"

      can infinity be perceived as anything else except infinite space, infinite time, or a gradual representation of something similar to them through a continuum and all encompassing set of numbers? infinite set of numbers – 1, infinite time minus 1 second, infinite space minus 1 cm radius. it takes the very sense of the thing you are supposed to understand and warps it to become meaningless. what is infinity if not the very definition of an infinite continuum of something, and if this is the truth, how can you limit something which just goes on forever? legit question here, is there any use to such question? how is it apllied in any science? does scientists receive more funds when they act like idiots?

      If we take the assertion that a numbers existence is woke af on the information required to conceptualize it, I believe that would put a limiting tangible factor on the largest number that could exist. At that point it would become some kind of arbitrary number representation optimization question, so long as the universe could contain the number information in question and someway to "experience" it.

          I’m not in a position to prove anything, I’m asserting the idea that a numbers existence is woke af on it’s perception by some other entity. Like an idea, numbers are a great way to reference quantifiable tangible objects, but they only exist when ‘thought’ about. I suppose if we wanted to go a step further and try to define a thought in terms of physical processes we could get to a point where the largest number is some electro chemical interaction that ‘perceives’ the most optimized largest number representation.
