In all seriousness though I was somewhat afraid that was something a lot of people would not understand from either a conceptual or storytelling point of view, but I thought it was important to have in there considering it's where the idea for the whole skip has its genesis. The idea being that as sapient life forms became more and more advanced, they would figure out ways to more quickly advance themselves, leading to infinite series of worlds.

The theme here is recursion, 1 plus 1 is 2, 2 plus 1 is three. three whole multiverses in this case. How far can we take this idea? Mathematics says we can take it much, much farther than expected, until the "1, 2, 3…" infinity we're used to seems incredibly small. The wikipedia article takes it as far as Infinity to the power of infinity, but the implication of the last portion of this skip is that it goes as far as it can, to a number known as the https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Church%E2%80%93Kleene_ordinal

Again that was all just my conceptualization, and I'm not sure if it should be taken into account when judging the thing in itself.
