In J.H. Conway's number system (see J.H. Conway, "On Numbers and Games", Academic Press), it is possible to add 1 to infinity (or add 1 to the "end"). More precisely, if omega is the first infinite ordinal (cardinal?), then omega+1 is a number and is well defined. It is "born" the day after omega was born. May be we have been using the wrong number system all this time! Ken Chan American Bell, Lincroft (houxq!kenchan)
