If you knew ANYTHING about Math, you would have asked for a formula.
Thanks for proving you know absolutely nothing about Mat
But just to humor the stupids, I'll do it, just as soon as I get a round tuit.

Insufferable know-it-all.Einstein God has a plan for us. Please stop screwing it up with your prayers.

The formula is not the number. The formula is simply x. The numbers are 1, 5.8, pi, exp(1), exp(2), please list all numbers between 0 and 1. The actual infinity can not be listed.

There's a Vsauce Youtube video that goes into/helps explain this sort of 'Infinity' thing.

Can't link atm.

Of note. The infinite amount of 'Subdivision' within whole numbers can't be 'listed' as such but I'm pretty sure it can be 'Represented'.

Why would you want to represent "the infinite amount of 'Subdivision' within whole numbers" using your god?

Maybe Borg means the 'Ultimate god of the gaps'?
