Of course, it is intuitively clear that the real line somehow may be conceived as a sort of geometrical realization of the number line. I wonder, however, how this relates to the non-standard real numbers, à la Robinson: are they also usefully thought of as represented on the same geometrical line or is there some kind of obstacle or difficulty to such an interpretation?
