Not only will he come between them, he'll come right in the middle of them, exactly. (2 and 3, that is. Rad 5 doesn't count.)

Suggested/predicted by William Ricker, although I will say it was kinda/sorta planned along this way in the first place.

I don't see why sqrt(5) needs to move along. There's an infinite sequence of rationals 2, 5/2, .. approaching sqrt(5). There's plenty of room for numbers, it just gets crowded for the Numerals representing.

I am pleased the "prove you're not a robot" text challenge for this comment is all numeric and ends with photo 5.
