Do you suppose that even mathematicians stop at some point because it would involve moving into higher dimensions to expand on the ^9? Like the Mayan Calendar, at some point you just have to stop? This could open the next level of our shared existence, I can sense the expanding Universe even as we discuss this topic.

Hello Antar! Everyone I asked, didn't have the answer.
But I have a question for you about what is higher than 9?
Well logical yes 10 is higher than 9 but the symbol of 9 is the highest number in our system. There is no number larger than 9 right?
In essence do you follow what I am saying?
No, I do not, I was told by a Prof in College that I do not think logically and that is why I have trouble with numbers. So to me 0 would be the highest number. Without it we would be resigned to stay under 10. To repeat the endless loop, kind of like reincarnation. Plus it has a resonance which no other number has, like Om, or the circle which represents God or infinite alpha and omega.
So large yet so small.. A logical parameter that holds us all hostage!
There goes that word again. So with a mind like yours how to take the logic and complexity away from the equation and find the infinite through the unexplained levels we have yet to comprehend.
So do you see what I mean about the glazed over look you get from people when you intentionally introduce something which they never even conceived a thought about before? This is raising consciousness by numbers. it will only work for a short time because of the cosmic consciousness, the thread that runs through us all.
When Governments and institutions go after a Buddha or a Christ or a Socrates, it is always because it only takes one enlightened being to change the entire gestalt of a society. To awaken individuals to the next step in awareness. Not everything they say is dangerous, no but somewhere even between the words or in the absence of the message can be the most dangerous of problems that the illuminated ones the elitists see as potential to their demise. Only in ignorance can people be controlled.
So an experiment like this does change consciousness. It raises it.

I am not asking for the 'pat' answer, what is the highest number you personally know? Before this thread I did not know more than a trillion for sure, and never knew anyone personally that did either without a doubt.
A few years ago I started the rumor of a Gazillion being the next number so when you ask 5 random people, what is their answer? I am not talking about mathematicians, just ordinary people? Talk about a revolution, now if we pull this thread up in say 1 years time and do it again if I am correct, more people will have the correct answer. That is how consciousness is raised.

"Googol" is the mathematical term for a 1 followed by 100 zeros. The term was coined by Milton Sirotta, nephew of American mathematician Edward Kasner, and was popularized in the book, "Mathematics and the Imagination" by Kasner and James Newman.
