Imagine counting all positive integers over a unit period of time, from zero to one, thusly: Count 1 at time 1/2, 2 at time 3/4, 3 at time 7/8, and so on, with each integer coming at half of the remaining time after the last integer counted. As the time moves inexorably toward one, and becomes almost one, the number of integers counted becomes just as almost infinite.
