How To Count Past Infinity

What is the biggest number you can think of? A Google? A googolplex? In reality, the biggest number is 40, which covers more than 12,000 square meters of Earth and is made out of strategically planted trees in Russia. But in terms of the amount of things which is usually what we mean by a number view big, 40 probably isn’t the biggest. For example, there’s 41, and then there’s 42 and 43… . No matter how big of a number you can think of, you could always go higher. So there is no biggest last number except infinity. But how can you count past infinity?
