Lorentz Jr Posted March 3 Share Posted March 3 (edited) 8 minutes ago, Boltzmannbrain said: This example has always been my intuition when thinking about a "next real number". However, this only shows that this particular method to find a next number does not work. because there is no "next" real number. The word "next" only has meaning in the context of countable sequences. Intuition won't help you understand the real number line, because your intuition (and everyone else's) is based on finite numbers and countable sequences.
