Ridiculously huge numbers (part 11)

Continuation of part 10, in which I introduce the full verson of the Goodstein sequence and Goodstein function. (I lean heavily on the very good Wikipedia article on Goodstein's theorem in this video.) Here I can finally show the connection between fast-growing functions and the foundations of mathematics. This and part 10 together are mosty self-contained, but they do refer to a few notions from the previous parts.
