Real numbers can't have ordinals because it's impossible to tell what
the successor to a real number is. What is the successor to 2.3? Is it
2.31? Or is it 2.301? Or does 2.3001 sound more convincing? The answer
is there is no ordinal relationship here. There is no successor to a
real number. * Infact between any two real numbers there exists an
infinite amount of other real numbers.*
