I used to think a googolplex was the biggest number ever. It's been said that there are more zeros in that number than there are particles in the observable universe. Then I learned that Graham's number is a lot bigger. Then someone figured out a much larger number called Tree(3). Then came along Loader's number, which has been said is the biggest computable number. Then there are even bigger numbers that exist but aren't considered "useful" such as Rayo's number and Bigfoot. Graham's # is basically zero compared to these. Anything beyond a googolplex is so big that it's been said a human brain will crush into a black hole before it can comprehend the size. Some of the guys who study this stuff also say there are multiple universes.
