Googolplex

Googolpex is defined as 10googol. If google is 1 followed by a 100 zeroes, then googolplex can be written as 10(10^100). It’s been said that if you try to write down googolplex numbers, and you painstakingly write each one such that it’s the size of an atom, the entire universe won’t be able contain it.

Think of the most beautiful thing you’ve ever seen. I imagine that it’s hard to single out what the “most beautiful” is for you, as you could name a few or a lot that you can’t count it on your fingers anymore. It could be the first time you’ve laid eyes on your baby and/or a sea of sky lanterns being released into the air and/or the calm waters of the ocean on a lazy Saturday morning. I think that if we try to ask each person what she/he perceives to be beautiful (which is a herculean task), then we’ll maybe end up with a collection that’s composed of approximately googolplex elements. What I find amazing, however, is that the universe is able to contain all of these things.

You’re blessed to have eyes that see the beauty in the world.
