In mathematical numeral systems, the radix or base is the number of unique digits, including zero, used to represent numbers in a positional numeral system.
For example, for the decimal system (the most common system in use today) the radix is ten, because it uses the ten digits from 0 through 9.

I’ve been thinking about what is the ultimate base for years… But I couldn’t come to a definitive answer.
But aliens have an intelligence far surpassing mine, they have probably already found all the secrets of the universe, so surely they must know what is the ultimate base.
Has there already been some people who have been abducted by aliens and who have asked them “what base do you use”?
Or next time YOU get abducted by aliens, please ask them “what is the ultimate base?” and then tell me what did they answer you.
Thanks in advance for your answers.
