Googolplex and numbers discussion


Recommended Posts

I have decided to start a new topic about numbers !  Mathematical dilemmas,probability, illustrations about numbers etc ..

 

Googolplex is a huge number !writing a googolplex in standard form (i.e., "10,000,000,000...") would be physically impossible, since doing so would require more space than is available in the known universe.And one day we will live longer than googolplex number ! What a prospect !

I learned about googolplex over 50 years ago and I loved the sound of the word and was fascinated by the number. I haven't looked it up in years but it was defined as a written number that would go to the nearest star and back. Is that the correct definition?

 

EDIT: Found it

Richard I am not sure because the other sources quote my above statement .. that's why it's good to have a discussion about it and other related matters ..

 

Richard start digging :thumbsup:

If a person can write two digits per second, then writing a googolplex would take around about 1.51×1092 years, which is about 1.1×1082 times the accepted age of the universe.[6]

 

 How big is this number ? ...  1.51×1092  

Can someone put this in the perspective ?

Interesting subject. I have never heard of Googleplex. I suck big time at maths. & Can't get the gist of it. This boggles my mind. Definietly something to ponder over.

With Jehovah, working with numbers like googolplex is child's play.  And he doesn't even need a calculator!

I noticed our sister used "Googleplex" That is the headquarters of Google.  Google's name is based on the word Googol​.

(Ecclesiastes 1:4) A generation is going, and a generation is coming, But the earth remains forever.

 

Forever is bigger than any numerical number proposed by humans

 

Thus the gift of everlasting life is hard to fathom.

 

I think once a person lives beyond googleplex number of days and years then understanding of infinity can finally click in.

 

We can reason like this:

 

In the first googleplex era I will learn playing all instruments and master all the productive skills etc etc

In the second googleplex I will make friends with all people living in the known universe etc etc

In the third googleplex era I will ...  (make your own)

In the 1297 googleplex era I will try to understand NEW things about Jehovah

 

In the 85556790 googleplex era followed by 700 zeros JEHOVAH WILL STILL PROVIDE US WITH THINGS TO OCCUPY OUR BRAINS  - and this blows my brain away - the realization of limitless godship of Jehovah our Father.

 

And who knows what is coming in 922228866789555 googleplex era  followed by 95678 zeros ?

 

FOREVER is a long time friends  :o

There is a number larger than a googolplex

 

Googolplexian: The worlds largest number with a name. A "1" followed by a googolplex of zeros.

Googolplex: The second largest number with a name. A "1" followed by a googol of zeros. 

Googol: A large number. A "1" followed by one hundred zeros.​

 

Imagine living that number of years, and then more!

When we have been living that many years, the time we spent in this system of things will seem like nothing.  Any suffering or unhappy events in our lives today will fade into nothing.  In fact the last 6000 years of human misery will became a few seconds, a momentary glitch in history.

I think that's the way Jehovah views matters "the King of Eternity"

No, there is Graham's number, which is so big that can't even be expressed in a power of 10 notation... Then there is the TREE(3)... Then Loader's number.... Then.... Then.... :)

Check the very nice video Simon posted

Yes that's correct !

And I think only Jehovah can understand practical application of such big numbers !
