Here's a neat exercise to do while you're reading the scriptures of the bible. Figure out how many zeros tally up on all the pages. This is terrific, because the total can be quite enormous!

For example: Let's say we have a 6" inch length by 4" inch width bible. Furthermore, we're going to count up how many zeros can fit into each row on that page. Now, this amount includes empty spaces adjacent on both sides of the words and all blank spaces between words. Hence, if we do this correctly, the sum comes out to 85 zeros. On top of that, we count up the total number of rows, which comes out to 52 rows of zeros. Then, multiply the 85 zeros per row times the 52 rows for the page total of 4,420 zeros. After that, we take the 1,400 pages found in this small compact bible and multiply that figure times the 4,420 zeros per page for the absolute total of 6,188,000 digits. Nonetheless, one of these digits has to be a number 1, so that actual number of zeros is 6,187,999. Therefore, we write this out in scientific notation as 1 x 10 ^ 6,187,999.

Now, this amount is way way way more gigantic than the 3.1 quadragintillion years noted in the quintuple series entitled "Crown Jewel Analogy: Eternity". Here's the comparison in scientific notation for you to glance at: 3.1 quadragintillion years or 3.1 x 10 ^ 123 versus 1 x 10 ^ 6,187,999 years. In fact, this number is so large, it doesn't even have a name. However, it still doesn't compare to a googolplex years, which is a 1 followed by a googol zeros. Nevertheless, neither of the two very large numbers come close to infinity.

Regardless, this an interesting little scientific and mathematical problem to solve with any sized bible to enhance our meditation of eternity and to give a double meaning to the scriptures.
