A zoomable transfinite number-line of the ordinal numbers, currently going up as far as Γ0. Use the mouse to move and the left and right buttons to zoom in or out, Q or Escape quits. Note that there is currently a limit to the depth you can zoom to before the accuracy runs out.
In simple terms, for every set of transfinite numbers there is a smallest number larger than all of them, which explains why the finite numbers can be grouped together to get the first infinite ordinal ω and then this can be grouped with them to get ω+1 and so on (for a very long way). It is impossible to write a program to display a complete number line up to or any further than ω1CK (the Church-Kleene ordinal), but displays of ordinals smaller than that but larger than Γ0 are still possible.
As well as the version below you can run previous version up to ε0.
