I think he is asking if it's possible to create a geometric representation based on pi in two or more dimensions similar to the way the Fibonacci sequence gives rise to the Golden Ratio and then the Golden Spiral.
Your syntax

I did not say that adding those would give you a value of pi. Where did you get that idea from in my post?
What if we twisted Pi
Those images are what I was imagining!

What about converting odd numbers in PI to zero and even ones to odd and seeing if it could be binary? I actually tried to do this before with mixed results, but it could be that there is data hidden in PI.

There is not.
In math all numbers are arbitrary until they are used to describe something.

That's why I was curious what would happen if you changed it from a 10-base to something else.
ie; Hexidecimal. . .

Here's a really cool article where artists tried assigned colors, directions, etc to the digits of pi.

Pi is an irrational number. Irrational numbers by definition have an infinite decimal expansion that does not repeat (no pattern.)
Also, a number has no dimension so your question is basically nonsense to a mathematician.
