Happy Pie Day

Happy Pi day!

This morning (3/14/15, 9:26:53 AM, to be precise), take a second to reflect on the ratio of a circle’s circumference to its diameter.

Pi Day is celebrated on March 14th (3/14) around the world. Pi (Greek letter “π”) is the symbol used in mathematics to represent a constant. In this case the constant relationship of the circumference of a circle to it’s diameter.

Think of that for a moment and interpose to the circle, the circle of Life.

Or as Einstein thought of it, it’s a way to reflect upon the relationship of Time to the Event Horizon of our Lifetimes.

Or as Pythagoras thought about it … π, is simply the answer to the Universe…

“π” or Pi Day is the annual celebration of the mathematical constant π (pi). Pi Day is observed on March 14, (3/14 in the month/day date format since 3, 1, and 4 are the … beginning numbers).

For 24 hours, Pi Day 2015 will be the one and only Pi Day in the next 100 years that will actually reflect the first five numbers in everyone’s favourite irrational number, pi, which is 3.1415 or in the next 1000 years that will reflect the sequence in that specific order.

How cool is that?

Aren’t you Happy to Be Alive?

Celebrate… with π, pi, and pie.

The next time π friends, pie lovers, and pi lovers alike will see such an event will not be until March 14, 2115, and in all seriousness an exact replica of this mathematical sequence will not be until 2215. A Thousand Years out…

Smart people, friends of Einstein, and math majors everywhere rejoice in the sweet, sweet sequential glory of the day, today and have some Pi-pie.

So be serious, and go eat some pie. Do some math. Time really is a flat circle. Think of it and do some more math. Add whipped cream i a circle on top of your pie. Look at the swirl of cream chantilly and think of Life’s circle. Device some cool complex algorithms while thinking of old Pythagoras and his kick-ass theorems.

And we have the top 5 reason why Pi day is pure mind bending fun…

1. Pi day is celebrated on March 14th at 1:59 a.m. PST which is 3.14159. This time will be extra special on 3/14/15…

2. There are no occurrences of the sequence 123456 in the first million digits of pi, which makes this Pi day one million times more special than any other sequential date ever. Ever ever. Ever ever ever. And to think that we have already discovered up to 64 Billion digits of Pi and more to come, we are on our way…

3. In the Greek alphabet, pi is the 16th letter. In the English alphabet, p is also the 16th letter, further proving pi is the same in every language ;–) and Einstein was also born on Pi day so that make everything relative.

4. The humble π has been studied for over 4,000 years. Most of this long time it was studied by Greeks. It has been studied diligently and far longer than almost any other discipline of Science. More observation, intellect, and “nous” have been spent on π than on anything else. Many ancient mathematicians spent their whole lives studying the little Pi to no discernible advantage.

5. Then again some people believe pi contains the answers of the universe, so it follows that they would want to study it fully. Or is it the answers to the Universe? Myself has one thing to say to them: “Dude — Lay off the pipe”

Go Figure This One Out….




Did You Figure the riddle here?
