Title: Infinitely Long Integers: An Introduction to Adics

Abstract: If we accept the existence of infinitely long integers, we obtain a consistent system which contains some fractions. These fractions can be computed using a sort of approximation. There is a problem, but after dealing with that, some kind of intuition regarding p-adic integers can be obtained.
