the thing about swords is that there really is no "biggest sword you can imagine" because once you've imagined it, there's nothing stopping you from imagining a bigger sword
@rain in the context they wrote it in, it was like "this guy is very strong, we know because their sword is 196kg"
@monorail what if you imagined a sword that grows every time it's size is perceived? at some point does the sword grow to a size that one could no longer imagine? and if it does, at what point would that be? and if it doesn't, then what does that say about the power of psyche?
@fibonacci_reminder @monorail @Liizerd Is there? The size of a sword would be expressed as a cardinal number, and the infinite cardinals are the aleph-numbers. Aleph-numbers are indexed by ordinals, and (to my knowledge) there is no biggest ordinal, you can always add 1, which gives you a strictly bigger aleph-number.
