Yes, this is inherent in the construction of the CSO. s(t) has to be

smaller than 1 for any finite t. But what about transfinite values for t?

Since transfinite numbers can be described in a mathematical consistent way,

it is possible to define a mathematical model of the CSO surviving beyond

s(t) = 1 . Following Tegmark one should thus believe that the CSO will

experience this moment.
