The largest number we can count right now in nature would be a googleplex, which is a google of googles
Huh? You couldn't count that "in nature" - it's bigger than the number of particles in the galaxy (IIRC). It's just an incredibly large number. It's countable in the mathematical sense, but not in practice - it'd take longer than the age of the universe. Even if you could count to it, you could easily count to a googleplex +1, which is bigger.
