Someone finds fancy with imaginary, complex, surreals, transcendental, --- here, let us fasten them with velcro on this side of the counting numbers, or, let us sew on in zigzag pattern the Rationals to Counting Numbers. Or, let us use a punch press to apply the complex with the Reals.

Instead of 1 and adding 1, in 10 Grid, we start with .1 and add .1 until we reach 10, then in 100 Grid we start with .01 and continue to add by .01 until we reach 100. And we continue this until we reach 10^604 Grid where we stop at the Infinity borderline.

If you want the title to be accurate name it "My asinine shit about a subject I understand nothing about"

And why the fuck 603 digits? Why not 613?
