geordief Posted January 22 Share Posted January 22 Are there numbers that are to large for us to represent? Finite numbers... If we calculate the number of events/interactions that take place within a defined spacetime volume is it possible to represent that in a conventional way ,like 10 to power of some finite number? Eg a ball of lead with a mass of 1 kilo. Then ,if we extrapolate and our test volume is increased to include the observed or theorized universe ** that number defies imagination but is there any way to represent it? Not infinity because it is not ,I think infinite. Not measurable,quite obviously but what happens to our number system if we try to give it a number? **ie the number of interactions that might take place over the whole lifetime of a temporaly finite universe.
