the joy of pi





djsaul
have you read this book?. ist really interesant
David Blatner's "The Joy of Pi," describes the phenomena of number fetishists' utter and complete fascination with the ratio of a circle's circumference to its diameter, or as it is more commonly known, the number "pi". From as far back as Archimedes to the two guys in Manhattan who recently locked themselves in their apartment computing pi into the billions, Pi has been an elusive obsession for many a poor soul throughout time. In fact, Blatner estimates the world has spent over 4,000 years trying to solve the unsolvable mysteries of Pi.

There are many deep, philosophical and scientific questions wrapped up in the enigma of Pi that lead us to question certain aspects of our very own existence. But the fact remains that while Pi has been claimed to be everything from a numerical representation of the Bible to a metaphor for immortality, as Blatner assesses, it is in all reality just a series of numbers.
