I assume this 4,573,895,489,084,392 (four quadrillion, five-hundred and seventy-three trillion, eight-hundred and ninety-five trillion, four-hundred and eighty-nine million, eighty-four thousand and three-hundred and ninety-two) to be an expressive 4,573,895,489,084,392 . Also, Is he a rat?

Expressive? No way. It's a concrete number. I counted. It took a couple lifetimes (including lunch breaks and frequent naps).

I don't think he's a rat. He looks sort of like a cartoon character to me, but I could be mistaken. Here is a picture of a rat for comparison: [link]

By expressive I meant non-literally that many times was hewn of Pen on Paper as the total time would have taken - with an average let's say of an hour an image - literally that many hours which itself when divided by 24 and then 365 (all done by calculator as fun as 'twould be to reckon such a great digit) sans the proper 1/4th leap year reckoning comes to 522,134,188,251.64292237442922374429 recurrent decimal pattern. And I'm just one who assumes you are not possessant of this time which is itself some fifty-one times hence of the Creation - several billion times the biblical creation - and equivalent to one and two thirds of two Asankya-kalpas. And as fer my rodential assumption - I looked upon the Chart ye were kind enough to show of how Ralph had developed over the past 1/10th of an Ayu-kalpa and it was from the sentiment of one still in that Cycle of Draught-development that I myself spoke earlier. The Only Character I even have remotely so developed be Mel' de Vulture whose time in such development has been a meagre 1 and 1/2 year uneven - a mere tenth to this Muroid (Ratlike) Ralph. And an even merer count in relation to The Maha-Tochtli Bugs bunny who is Avatar of the Great Lord of the Four-hundred Rabbits Gods of the Pulque which drunkards use as their Aqua-vitae. And Even Merer to the incomparable Drinky Crow of Maakies purveyance - Which from its alcoholic birth and continuanse has been as a Cartoon upon the Earth for a lot of some 1/5th to 1/4 of an Ayu-kalpa. I hope that answers your reply well enough.
