Dear PF Forum,

I watched this video

10 ^ 10 ^ 10 ^ 5600

The narative says,

But that's not what I think,

I think it is 1 followed by I don't know.

What does this number means?

Is it

A: 10 ^ (10 ^ (10 ^ 56)))

or

B: ((10 ^ 10) ^ 10) ^ 56?

It says that

"As another possibility, during the dark era, the extreme low energy states might cause the localized quantum events to become major microscopic phenomena. At that point the smallest pertubation might lead to enormouse changes. In their paper spontaneus inflation and the origin of arrow of time, Sean Caroll and Jennifer Chan have calculated that the new Big Bang would eventually emerge out of random quantum fluctuations and quantum tunneling in roughly in

Well, is it 1 followed by 5600 zeros or (10 ^ (10 ^ 56))) zeros?

And judging from the physics involved, which one is true?

I mean 2 * (3 * (4 * 5 )) is the same as ((2 * 3) * 4) * 5 right. Or

2 + (3 + (4 + 5 )) = ((2 + 3) + 4) + 5 right.

And what about Penrose Number?

10

Is it

A: 1 followed by 246 zeros

or

B: 1 followed by... you know.

Here is the link:

Thank you very much for your help.
