In ordinal notation, it's 1/(omega^omega), and omega^omega is a rather small ordinal in the hierarchy of countable infinities. (Not that I particularly like the hierarchy.)

(1/dx) is bigger than any n. It lies outside sequence of infinite natural numbers. (please look into non-standard analysis). It is a qualitatively different number. And after 1/dx, we still have infinite INTEGERS. What are they?
