After that, a connection is established with the divisibility in the Stone–Čech compactification βN, proving that the divisibility of ultrafilters introduced by the author is equivalent to divisibility of some elements belonging to their respective monads in an enlargement. Some earlier results on ultrafilters on lower levels on the divisibility hierarchy are illuminated by nonstandard methods. Using limits by ultrafilters we obtain results on ultrafilters above these finite levels, showing that for them a distribution by levels is not possible.
