Make the number bigger.
So that you can make the number get bigger faster.
"Why would I want that?"
To make the number get even bigger.
"The number's not big enough to make the number get bigger faster yet."
It will be big enough sooner than you think.
"I decided I don't care about making the number bigger anymore."
That's okay, it will get bigger while you're gone. You'll be back.
"What's this other number?"
It gets bigger when the regular number gets bigger.
That helps the regular number get bigger.
"The number isn't getting much bigger anymore. I guess eventually there won't be anything left to do and I'll be done."
Oh look the rules changed. Now the number is big enough that you would have been done, but now there's a bit more to do.
"So it's exactly the same as before?"
No, the number is bigger.
