For comparison, today I stumbled upon Graham's number. It's a number so big that it is impossible to describe in any way without the use of pure mathematics, but it's not just made up, it is actually used to prove the Ramsey theory. It's literally impossible to imagine it because even an insignificant fraction of it would require all the space in the Universe to contain it.

#4. Graham's number is big, but not as big as Harold's number.
Harold's number = Graham's number + 1 :D
