I must say he is difficult to understand and I could have easily mistaken his words. However at about the 6 minute mark he talks about an earlier mathmatician and another famous problem.

It is probably a coincidence but twice the height of the pyramid 437 Indus 480.7 x 2 = 961.4 squared = 924,289.96 very close to the correct pi squared ^6 924,269.1815.

As for the rest it is way over my head but I am enjoying the video.
