Well, I don't know the values, but I certainly can assume

they exist and do not change if time does not change. So I can

have a(t), the largest number in my personal environment

at time t, and b(t) the largest number that my computer

is able to calculate at time t. (I don't suppose that

the largest number that a given computer is able to

compute can change, but certainly the computer

referred to as "my computer" can change).

I only need assume that the value of m exits and

does not change if time does not change and then

I can assign the value of m to a function of time.
