There's a math puzzle whose answer is a really huge number. How huge? According to Harvey Friedman, this number is incomprehensibly huge. Now Friedman is an expert on enormous infinite numbers and how their existence affects ordinary math. So when he says a finite number is incomprehensibly huge, that's scary. It’s like seeing a seasoned tiger hunter running through the jungle with his shotgun, yelling "Help! It’s a giant ant!"
