    Now it isn't trivial to write down.
    It has been proven (of course in an anti-intuitionistic 1] ,
    Cantor-universe) that there is always a larger cardinal, and that
    there is no consistent way to write them down. In other ways, you
    have to keep inventing new notations, hardly a trivial matter.
