It's possible to write the Von Newman's Ordinal with a funny formula: $\displaystyle \begin{tabular}{lll} 1 0 0 2 0.1 0.1 3 0.02 0.12 4 0.003 0.123 5 0.0004 0.1234 6 0.00005 0.12345 $ Till 9 (to go general the formula must be refined) the second column comes from: $VN_x = (x1)/10^{(x1)}$ The third (include all elements of the set sorted as decimal number) by the recoursive Sum of the value of the previous Sum, plus the $VN_x$ I rellay know, what I'm talking of...
