ah, but pi is the ultimate rounder, eh?
(ooh, i think i just had a little sarcasm, there)
- as you may know, there are many interesting paths to pi
(and may i say: any number there are interesting paths to
may claim some rank compared to pi based on that context)

reading and understanding this page [url=http://mathworld.wolfram.com/PiFormulas.html]Pi Formulas[/url] is required
to prevent the casual dismissal of ideas
which are more than worthy to be considered
i say the pyramids may be themselves a path to pi
as analyzing them gives a better understanding of it
and that is not true with most unintentional thingies
so we have a pattern and an obligation to respect it
to give it the benefit of the doubt as a predictor
but if every interesting thing so stumbled upon
connections are rejected before they're born
then what are any of us doing anywhere?
(oh good, that question popped up)

[quote=Hendrik]
"The foremost duty of a scientist is to check the facts. However, science on an inspired level requires more than making and collecting observations; it is also the drawing of conclusions, and possibly the formulation of a theory. At this stage imagination is needed and this involves a much more difficult task… Usually scientists are willing to give any theory, however doubtful, a try provided it shows imagination and it offers new ideas… A scientific theory has to be judged by its credibility, which depends on the supporting evidence. Its value increases with the volume of such evidence…”
