More Pi Please…

    Greetings, this is Spaceman’s Hairdo from Y2K+15, D14/M03. If you like this bit check it out in its evolved form.

The circle and its three-dimensional manifestation the sphere are fascinating shapes because they are contained infinities. No matter where you reside on it the relative measurements will always be the same because there are no relative measurements! Why? Because there are no edges. The sphere suggests infinite energy because there are no edges to determine relative points of measurement like a square or cube. But get this…a sphere has to be contained to be perceived which suggests its infinity is not all that it seems. Spheres come in many different sizes. What does that say for their degree of infinity? Are spheres more or less infinite due to their size? (What a ridiculous question) A conundrum arises. The only way to determine this is to find the biggest sphere and measure it relative to other spheres. But we will never find such a shape. Why?

Because when we measure a circle something funny happens. The ratio of its outside to its inside is infinite regardless of its size so in essence they are all ONE size due to that peculiar ratio with its infinite fraction. The fraction is infinite because it suggests a chase to find the smallest arc. Remember, a circle is nothing but a series of infinitely regressively smaller arcs. That means a circle’s interior as well as exterior never reduce to a point. The fraction that cannot be summed up suggests infinite energy. Pi does not stand still. It is infinite, that means it’s moving as we speak. We have only calculated a bit and even if we calculate a larger bit it will still only be a small bit. It will always be a small bit. That’s what the fraction suggests. Oh, and don’t fret the numbers they are just fractions themselves…ONE goes to TWO with .5 in between. That is the link. Well, not really. Because each fraction can be broken down infinitely. So within one and two we think we have an even ratio of halves, but to calculate this midway point is impossible because once we split the middle the two halves become wholes that can also be split and this process continues on ad infinitum.


The .5 is essentially an angle not a midway point because the middle is how we determine how we will split an object. Shapes with consistently even angles and circles do best at this game. The circle is funny because it has no edges yet when you look at it you know right away where the middle is. If I handed you a circle-shaped piece paper and asked you to fold it in half you could do so without much thought. Now fold it in half again and again and again. Notice the angles. The arc will never disappear, but neither will the angles. The continual folds show you the power of what seems to be just a piece of paper. You are recreating spiraling energy. The same energy that drives everything and it is all based on relative angles. Each of the infinitely regressive arches now has a point of triangulation and that point shoots out to a union of line and arc.

Sorry, had to throw out the numbers stuff. I find it easier to understand if you just look at it literally. What blows me away is the fact that this shape actually exists! Our bodies, our solar system, our machines and so much more utilize it for perpetual motion. We can even create it. We pat ourselves on the back for this ability and then we look in the mirror and see two working together to perceive each other. You cannot look yourself in the eyes. You can only look into one. To do this your eyes move in tandem, but you cannot perceive this movement when you are looking into one eye. Notice how when you lock “eye” with another person something happens. It’s a push/pull ratio dynamic. Do you cool the situation or enflame it? Depends on how you feel about the awkwardness of the lock-on. Why so awkward? Because it’s like seeing your doppelganger materialize from a stranger. All of those differences that surround our eyes are rendered moot when we lock-on, but it is how we feel about the surroundings that determines our course of action. Yeah, it goes back to that pi thing again. Two contained spheres searching for a point to settle on. When you stand outside you notice how your eyes seem to meet at a point. But as you walk the point opens up. In essence the (vanishing) point expands.

Wouldn’t be a Tricky Relativity pi post without the infamous desert road pic

Just imagine walking down the middle of a street and although it seems like the road’s lines converge, they never do. The illusion is created by our eye’s need to settle on a point. Something to anchor a relationship between where it is in relation to everything else. It is extraordinary because our two eyes which appear to be looking straight actually perceive an angle, not two points in space, but then again since they truly never meet you do perceive two points, just two that are very close together and it takes a strain on the muscles to “cross” them. Feels like you’re trying to break a magnetic connection. But why must our eyes stay fixed in positions that continually deceive us? Or is it our brain’s perception of this viewpoint the problem?

Well, our two eyes must find a point of triangulation to perceive depth. Open just one eye and look around. Quite hard to determine the positions of things and where they exist in relation to one another, isn’t it? Our eyes together perceive depth because they are trying to perceive each other. In order for us to see, this attraction must be allowed to happen, but not too much. Essentially to perceive matter in space we must see two images that overlap. Via this overlap we perceive matter and space. The space we perceive is relative to the matter present and the distance we are from it. But we can be fooled…

This structure was designed to trick the eye. The shrinking columns give the illusion of space because we expect our field of view to angle to a vanishing point…and between our eyes resides a point where everything is in focus. If I hold an object right in front of your face you will struggle to focus on it. If I hold this same object many feet (I wish I could have said meters) away from you its details will be indiscernible—relative to the object’s size there will be a point where it appears crystal clear to you. What this suggests is that we possess an atmosphere of perception. Surrounding us is a haze—relative points where we cannot perceive the details of matter. This phenomenon occurs near and far. When you look out toward a mountain range the mountains appear to exist behind a white haze…

It’s like the mountains are breaking down. You know they are dense, but they appear ghostly. This happens because these objects are large. You wouldn’t see a bicycle if it resided at the foot of one of the mountains. The mountains can be perceived over the bend. As we move about our sphere large objects come into view because of their relation to us. An ant would not be able to see the mountains until he got much closer. We perceive distant large matter at an angle. It is tilting slightly away from us. As we move closer it lines up with our perspective. Then we walk past and the range disappears behind us. And as we continue along we await the next surprise to pop up. The drive to explore is essentially pi. The infinite fraction.

3 divided by 20

Neither the diameter nor the circumference of a circle can be accurately measured due to the circle’s infinitely regressive arcs. In order to measure a circle we have to make a myopic leap. Just watch this…

We do not perceive a bee in this way although when we look at one we see all of these details (On the surface that sentence doesn’t makes sense, but just think about it, really think about it, no really really think about it). Our image of a bee is based on our limited perspective. With our naked eye we can only perceive a limited amount of its infinite dimensions. Remember, even the scanning electron microscope possesses limitations.

When we stand on a sphere everything appears flat, but we know the truth. The elusive point is two arcs meeting but they do not truly meet. It is you that binds them based solely on your (staggeringly limited) point-of-view. Points of view, like the infinitely regressive arcs, are infinite, but leave it up to us to argue whose perspective is the “right” one.

The Flat Earth Deception Continued…

We are incapable of perceiving the entire scope of light against the sphere or more accurately, oblate spheroid, of which we call home. We only perceive a “particle” of light and this phenomenon in concert with the diverse angularly jagged terrain creates the illusion of flatness thanks to that tricky sonofagun relativity.


I know I’ve already said this, but I just can’t “contain”myself. HA! Get it? “Contain” myself?

Pi is happening right now and it happened in the past and it will happen in the future. No matter how many digits we highlight it will always be. Perpetual infinite energy stretching through time and space.


I started off looking for answers, now I see the beauty in crafting sublime questions because that’s all life is. One sublime question broken up by an infinity of smaller but no less sublime questions.
