  • In 1888, a Indiana country doctor named Edwin Goodwin claimed he had been “supernaturally taught” the exact measure of the circle and even had a bill proposed in the Indiana legislature that would copyright his mathematical findings. The bill never became law thanks to a mathematical professor in the legislature who pointed out that the method resulted in an incorrect value of pi.

Man’s essential character lies in his strength and determination in pushing back his limits.The Name Resonant with history and mystery, is a link between past, present and future. Pi is the universal number, the transcendental number, the ruling number. Since Archimedes’ discovery of , more than 2000 years ago, has been the object of a ceaseless quest.

    21. 21. Copyright Audrey Weeks 2003 CAN YOU FIND 402 digits of PI ?“Circle Digits” For a time I stood pondering on circle sizes. The large computer mainframe quietly processed all of its assembly code. Inside my entire hope lay for figuring out an elusive expansion value: pi. Decimals expected soon. I nervously entered a format procedure. The mainframe processed the request. Error. I, again entering it, carefully retyped. This iteration gave zero error printouts in all - success. Intently I waited. Soon, roused by thoughts within me, appeared narrative mnemonics relating digit to verbiage! The idea appeared to exist but only in abbreviated fashion - little phrases typically. Pressing on I then resolved, deciding firmly about a sum of decimals to use - likely around four hundred, presuming the computer code soon halted! Pondering these ideas, words appealed to me. But a problem of zeros did exist. Pondering more, solution subsequently appeared. Zero suggests a punctuation element. Very novel! My thoughts were culminated. No, periods, I concluded. All residual marks of punctuation - zeros. First digitexpansion answer then came before me. On examining some problems unhappily arose. That imbecillic bug! The printout I possessedshowed four nine as foremost decimals. Manifestly troubling. Totally every number looked wrong. Repairing the bug took much effort. A pi mnemonic with letters truly seemed good. Counting of all the letters probably should suffice. Reaching for a record would be be helpful. Consequently, I continued, expecting a good final answer from computer. First number slowly displayed on the flat screen - 3. Good. Trailing digits apparently were right also. Now my memory scheme must probably be implementable. The technique was chosen, elegant in scheme; by self reference a tale mnemonically helpful was assured. An able title suddenly existed - “Circle Digits”. Taking pen I began. Words emanated uneasily. I desired more synonyms. Speedily I found my (alongside me) Thesaurus. Rogets is probably an essential in doing this, instantly I decided. I wrote and erased more. The Rogets clearly assisted immensely. My story proceeded (how lovely!) faultlessly. The end, above all, would soon joyfully overtake. So, this memory helper story I incontestably complete. Soon I will locate publisher. There a narrative will 360 words - ignore periods I trust immediately appear, producing fame. other punctuation = 0 words > 9 letters = 2 digits THE END. word for no. = digit 3.1415926535897932384626433832795028841971693993751058209749445923078 ...
