Very nice - thank you for this discussion! Although the teaching of the Buddha concerns especially the constructions of the mind, or more precisely, not so much the contents of it but the way how they come into existence. So I'm always much interested in the discussion about "infinity and mind", of which "large numbers and mind", "iteration and mind" and as such also ancient "tetration" may be sub-chapters ... :-)
