A cardinal $\kappa$ is *strong* if it is $\theta$-strong for every ordinal $\theta$, meaning that there is an elementary embedding $j:V\to M$ of the universe $V$ into a transitive proper class $M$, having critical point $\kappa$ and with $V_\theta\subset M$. One may without loss also suppose that $j(\kappa)\gt\theta$.
