One ‘googol’ year, is how much? It is the current age of the Universe, one billion billion billion billion billion billion billion billion billion billion times over. Squeeze the entire history of our Universe into the thickness of a Dollar note, and one-googol years would give you a pile of money that reaches one hundred quadrillions, quadrillion, quadrillion, quadrillion, light years high. It would not even fit into a universe a billion, billion, billion, and times larger than our own immense universe.

How small fleeting and insignificant we are we are?

One googol year. That’s truly staggering long anything, a human can comprehend. Nevertheless, infinitely small when compared to eternity. If a small bird sharpened its beak on the peak of Mount Everest, once every zillion, zillion, zillion, zillion, zillion, zillion, zillion, zillion, zillion, zillion, zillion, zillion, zillion, zillion, zillion, zillion, zillion, zillion, zillion, zillion, zillion, zillion, zillion,, zillion, zillion, zillion, zillion ,zillion, Google years, When the mountain is completely worn down, the first moment of eternity would not yet have occurred.

The largest number used by humanity is, however the unimaginably large Googleplex or

One google year to the power of a hundred. After even this enormous time has past eternity has still not yet begun.

If we want to look at smaller time periods, the fairly long computer time period of picosecond is thus; A picosecond is what a second is to 32 000 years. Yes, thirty-two thousand years. But on the time scale of the internet giant, it is a very long time indeed.

Time is thus an allusion relative to the observer. The Plank time Constant is supposedly the smallest discrete measure of time, in which what we call reality and existence could exist in our particular universe.
