### My number is bigger! Special Edition: The XKCDillion

Try to post the biggest number.

Typical rules don't apply, for example:
Spoiler:
Numbers ridiculously larger than the previous post: Allowed
Numbers with huge, hard to follow definitions: Allowed
Uncomputables, any order: Allowed
Infinities, Transfinites, any other kind of nonfinities: Allowed
Nonstandard Math: Allowed
Infinite Loops, Circular references: Allowed
Ill definitions, Undefined numbers: Allowed
External References, References to a dream your cousin mumbled about shortly before he passed out drunk: Allowed
Your number failed to actually be bigger: Thats ok, still counts!

Rule 1: Your number has X+ preceding it, where X is the previous post, unless your number uses the previous number in some other way (You may use X to reference it, in other words, X in the current post is shorthand for the number of the previous post).

The XKCD illion is 103Y+3 where Y = The latest number posted in this thread.

1000

X+(this number)
Again, this is why standard rules exist

Y^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^6661000000 where Y is xkcdillion without this step. This counts since the previous step is part of xkcdillion without this step.

X+w
(w is limit of natural numbers)
These rules illustrate how easy it is to loophole the rules specified here.
And even if you said "well it's equivalent to a statement not using X", remember that X is equivalent to 1+1+1+1+1+1... X times which doesn't explicitly use X. And you can even define a function K(X) where it is the successor of the number except for X, where K(X)=0. The definition explicitly uses X but it results in 0 anyways.

This was a rule though. And X+w is not a number.

BB(X) where BB is the busy beaver function.

It is a number though. It's shorthand for omega

Largest ordinal generated using sX(100) or less symbols using this notation with the following symbols only: Sn is S(n), Zn is 0(n), Fnm is n[m], ○FGn is f(n)○g(n), and @FGn being f(n)@g(n).

Ok, I failed to read the fine print, especially the rules about
* transfinites: allowed
* number that are not bigger: allowed

Spoiler:
A cardinal number can be 'bigger' than another. An ordinal is not bigger, it's just 'after'.

My number: Take all the sequences of X unicode characters. Take all the sentient beings that have or will exist. For each being and sequence, if the being can think of the sequence as a number, take that number. Now take the biggest of all these numbers.

A(X,1) where A() is the Ackermann function. Repeat for X times, but increase the second number by 1 every operation.

Repeat all calculations (?) before this post to X for every second from the creation of the first post to the creation of this post.
