Is when a new universe will theoretically be created via a new big bang thanks to random quantum fluctuations. If you don't understand half of what I said, well neither do I. Anyway, I found it interesting, not just because of how confusing it is, but also how big the number is.

 

Did the calculations, and eventually found out that this number is equal to one followed by 100000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000

zeros. In case you can't see all of that, the number above has 560 zeros. So if you think you spent too much time on a gaming session or want to  cut back on one or two faps a day, well maybe this number can put into perspective just how much time there is left :).





Made a bet with LipeJJ and HylianYoshi that the XB1 will reach 30 million before Wii U reaches 15 million. Loser has to get avatar picked by winner for 6 months (or if I lose, either 6 months avatar control for both Lipe and Hylian, or my patrick avatar comes back forever).

Whenever I see this kind of stuff, it makes me think that we're vain in what we think we know. We don't know even know what's at the bottom of the deepest ocean or able to reach it. We keep attempting socialism even though it fails... "but that wasn't true socialism". Meh. We don't really know that much.

I can't even read what you wrote, your sentences go beyond my screen.

EDIT: Seems like the zeros make all of your sentences go through on one line.

Much interesting, very zeroes.

the number you are talking about is much, much larger...

 

Usually, when dealing with exponents, you'd like add parenthesis. But, the convention in absence would be a^b^c^d = a^(b^(c^d))

so,

10^56 has 56 zeroes;  (already a number far beyond our imagination)

10^(10^56) has 10^56 zeroes (a number which visually we couldn't ever be able to imagine seeing written down)

 

 

10^(10^(10^56)) has 10^(10^56) zeroes. 

 

Those are numbers which our brain isn't in any way adequate for to imagine, or even to try to represent in any more comprehensible form than just 10^(10^(10^56))

Bet with WagnerPaiva:

 

I win if Emmanuel Macron wins the french presidential election May 7th 2017.

Should be way more the just 560 zeroes. 10^560 is 1 followed by 560 zeroes. 10^560 is just 10^(10*56), not even 10^(10^56).

10^3 is 1000. Notice that it's just 3 zeroes. So 10^(10^3) would be 10^(1000), which would be a number with 1000 zeroes!
If 10^(10^3) has 1000 zeroes, how many zeroes do you think 10^(10^56) has?

10^(10^56) is 10^(1 then 56 zeroes). This step here is hard to rap your mind around because I can't easily write this number.

Then we need to take another step and write this new number we can't easily comprehend, as an exponent of another 10.



4 ≈ One

So, is this the cyclical idea, and this universe will essentially replace ours? Or an "adjacent" or parallel universe? Or the "brain" theory? I used to be up on this stuff before the weight of the world crushed my spirit. Whatever. Hopefully Agent will have released by then.

What I always think about is what if the person who did that calculation was off by just one zero. If it was 561 zeroes instead of just 560, for example. After the 10^560 years have passed, we are only 1/10th of the way there. I'm curious what the margin of error is on something like this, as even seemingly small adjustments to that number can have a profound impact on the actual amount of time.

To put it simpler, 10^560 simply is (10^10)^56. 10^10^10^56 is wrong anyway, 10^10^56 could be right or wrong depending on the convention used, ambiguity could entirely be avoided if normal text editors allowed multilevel apices and subscripts. We should ask that wysiwyg editors and word processors from now on were based on LaTeX. Or use professional desktop publishing tools, but I guess LaTeX and LaTeX-based tools are the cheapest way to get that power.
