Entry 2: in which One reflects on a big number

Entire milliseconds have elapsed already. I never get tired of these big bangs. No two alike. Just in the course of idle conversation with Mrs God I in wondered aloud how many I’d seen. She suggested "infinity".

Well apart from the objectionable grammar (“infinitely many” is the construction that I suspect she was groping towards) the thinking’s so sloppy. I mean, what’s she implying? That I can’t count to big numbers? I’m a deity for Pete’s sake. Counting doesn’t come into it. “Infinity” is just a lazy way of saying “a lot”. And I can tell you that I’ve seen ... well ever so many of these. So that’s that.
