How high can you count?

What's the largest / highest named number in the English Language?

Is a googol the largest named number (aside from infinity)?


How about a googolplex?

(I was wrong in the past;  googolplex is NOT the highest named number.)

NOW, do you know what the highest/largest number in the English language,

not counting zillion, infinity ?

The highest number (or largest number) in the English language,

one centillion.

Whether you go with the American counting system or the British counting system, one centillion is still the highest named number in the English language.  But be aware that the American centillion has 303 zeros, while the British centillion has 600 zeros.





What does "Google" mean?

Possible origin of the word "Google":

It is this author's opinion that the people who coined the word "Google" created a hybrid of two existing words:

1.  Goggle

2.  Googol

Hence, in this author's opinion, Google means:  to goggle a googol websites

(Leon, 2007)

Woo-woo & Numbers

by Leon's Planet dot com
(numerology, tarot, astrology, etc.)

(1)  Numerology
Numerology is not the study of numbers, as one might think.  It is a science all right, but it is a science based upon a very, very old superstition.  The superstition may be as old as the modern human race, but that's not verifiable.  No one knows exactly how old numerology is.  We do know that it came from Mesopotamia, and that the Chaldeans were known far and wide for their use of astrology and numerology for information and prognostication.  Personally, I find it fascinating.  I think that perhaps the divine order of the cosmos may very well be based upon the science or superstition of numerology.  Is it a science or a superstition?  You decide.  Click here to learn more about numerology.

(2)  Tarot
From my research, the tarot card deck seems to align perfectly with Chaldean numerology.  See the following chart for verification.  (Note: I'm not going to go through the entire deck).

No. Numerology
Tarot Card Tarot Meaning
5 Overcoming.
Messianic Number.
Religious Teacher.
Sacred Knowledge.
"The Hierophant"


Hiero (Sacred Knowledge)
Phant (Revealer)

Hence:  The Hierophant is a revealer of sacred knowledge


6 Creation. (As the world was created in six "days" or periods of time).
Also:  procreation.
Also:  creativity.
"The Lovers"

Notice the children.
One is still in spirit form, while the other appears to be physical (I think this represents both the born and the yet-to-be-born).  And the card is a symbol of both the procreative process and procreation of offspring.
The serpent represents DNA.
See my page on serpents for more information.

10 10 = 1 + 0 = 1
The Universe.
All is connected.
String Theory.
Quantum Theory.
"Wheel of Fortune"

Also, the wheel of time.
Also, the motion of the solar systems, galaxies, and universe.

It's about the flow of time, and time brings new things into our lives.  Could be fortunate, or unfortunate.  Either way, life goes on.

13 13 = 1 + 3 = 4 = "Death"

This doesn't mean physical death.
"Death" is a metaphor for the end of something, or some aspect of one's life.
Some episode of one's life is coming to an end.


This has the exact same meaning as the numerology.

14 14 = 1 + 4 = 5 = Overcoming.

(See 5 above).


Moderation in all things.

Keeping balance.

In keeping balance, one overcomes the trials and tribulations of life.

15 15 = 1 + 5 = 6 = Procreation.

(See 6 above for more info.)

"The Devil"

If you look at the symbolism, it is implying that the Devil tempts people to get off their sacred path through obsessive attention to the procreative act.

While the procreative act can be enlightening, it can also be destructive.  You know what I mean.

(3)  Astrology and Numbers.
The year 2023, which is also a number, is associated with a Zodiacal sign, and an element.  The sign for 2023 is the rabbit; the element is water.  I believe that we are in for some major water damage in 2023, due to the sign of the water rabbit.  For more about Chinese Astrology, please see my Festivals of the Far East page.
But, let's look at the numerology of 2023.  2023 = 2 + 0 + 2 + 3 = 7.  Now, you must understand that each and every number has a neutral meaning, a good meaning, and a bad meaning.  The neutral meaning of 7 is completeness (as in: it is finished;  as in the finish of the week).  The good meaning could be that something bad is done.  The bad meaning could be that something good is done.  Honestly, I think that we are in end times, and that it signifies the end of good times in the world, and the beginning of some really bad times.  For more info on end times, see my end-of-the-world-prophecies page.

(4)  Gematria
I don't want to get into too much detail here, but succinctly, Gematria is the practice of assigning a number to each letter of the alphabet.  Then, you take names, add up the numbers of the name, and use numerology to get some information.  There's more info on my numerology page.
