A very very few rare numbers (only the smallest form of infinity) such at 9
are easily calculable. But there are numbers such as PI that are far more
numerous (a larger infinity) that can only be calculated if you are willing
to do an infinite number of calculations.

But that's still not big enough, most numbers, nearly all in fact, can't be
calculated at all, not even if you had infinite time at your disposal.
