We have all seen this picture atleast once or twice before. I shruged it off as something Just to judge the scale of the human body. But it gets deeper.

Our bodies when outstreched like that it equals Pi.

Now the number for Pi is never ending, the numbers after 3.14 --- --- There are billions of numbers past 3.14. 3.14 is just the short form.

Now here's my question. If the body fits perfectly into Pi, and Pi is never ending, what does that say about the human body?

And how does the human body fit into a number so perfectly, down to the billion billionth. ?!

Here's just the first 50 digits of Pi, I dont feel like writing out a couple billion....because I dont know them.

Couldn't you basically say the same thing about any object that would fit into a circle. I mean Pi being the ratio of the circumference to the diameter of a circle, any item that could even loosely fit into a circle would fit your description. Is there some connection to pi and the human body that I am missing?

I'm afraid that sentence makes no sense.

the human body equaling pi in that sence is the same as how a bubble equals pi....its just an abstract number that happens alot in nature....

Must just be coincidence, no one understands what I mean. And I dont feel like explainging it. Hell, it was already debunked.

Alright ...what I was saying...

The number for Pi, goes on for ever, the Human body fits perfectly into Pi, and Pi is never ending, so what does that mean about the human body? Maybe Soul?

I just found it odd, the Human body fits into a number ...not just close to, fits a number that is 3.14.................................................................................................................................................. ...................................................................................................................................................... ...................................................................................................................................................... ...................................................................................................................................................... ...................................................................................................................................................... ...................................................................................................................................................... ...................................................................................................................................................... ........................................... < alot longer then that.

The Vitruvian Man is a true example of DaVinci's genius. Th proportions are described for the male body:

a palm is the width of four fingers
a foot is the width of four palms
a cubit is the width of six palms
a man's height is four cubits (and thus 24 palms)
a pace is four cubits
the length of a man's outspread arms are equal to his height
the distance from the hairline to the bottom of the chin is one-tenth of a man's height
the distance from the top of the head to the bottom of the chin is one-eighth of a man's height
the distance from the hairline to the top of the breast is one-seventh of a man's height
the distance from the top of the head to the nipples is one-fourth of a man's height
the maximum width of the shoulders is one-fourth of a man's height
the distance from the elbow to the tip of the hand is one-fifth of a man's height
the distance from the elbow to the armpit is one-eight of a man's height
the length of the hand is one-tenth of a man's height
the distance from the bottom of the chin to the nose is one-third of the length of the face
the distance from the hairline to the eyebrows is one-third of the length of the face
the length of the ear is one-third of the length of the face

this topic does make me think of the golden ratio....and leo davinci does have a part in this

library.thinkquest.org...

ps: in this site they refer to "phi", which is different than "pi"

I'm afraid this doesn't make much sense to me...then again, I was never much of a math student
I would agree with wellwhatnow that pi is just a number that happens to happen a lot in nature, but it's a cool thought about connecting humans with infinity

I'm not much of a mathmatician either, yeah, Pi ties in alot due to sacred geometry, ... i Guess lol.

Just a thought, toechopper got the idea.

posted on Jan, 27 2005 @ 12:28 AM
well, if you think of it in terms of sacred geometry, then.....hell ya, your absolutly right....if any number comes even close to sacred geometry, it's most definatly pi...and phi

Math and the universe are identical, without math we wouldn't exist. Math is everywhere.. nature follows Fibonaccis sequence. Humans also follow this, as does possibly the entire universe. Ask any number cruncher about the most important number and phi always comes to mind. The Egyptians knew this, as did many other cultures. The only difference between now and then is that supercomputing has allowed us to vastly increase the number of decimal places phi has.

I just watched PI on TV the other day again,

posted these at the imdb board about it,

might be of interest.
