No, not really. Pi is an irrational number, that is one without end.
I will be releasing a new body of work that gives the True Value of Pi, based on the Harmonics of Phi (1.618033...),
a value close to 3.144...
The ancient Mathematics masters have always known that the two most important transcendental numbers
Pi and Phi are intimately related.

so I have an advantage
I tend to know the sh*t you know, and then some...
go here knock yourself out about your pi in the sky fantasies.
I respect this fella...

you still need to prove yourself.
my radar is still only picking up the IGNORANT blip on the screen...
THIS RARE BOOK IS NOW AVAILABLE.
It actually contains 60 different
and amazing ways of calculating Pi = 3.1464466
never before shown in print!!!
60 ways to leave your pi?
and find another piece of pi?
hahaha
namaste
Removed off topic remark.
Please read Courtesy is mandatory

Where students accept the difference between a sequence of numbers and its limit, they might read "0.999..." as meaning the sequence rather than its limit.

I think the only flaw we have here is in your maths education. That would explain how you can be so arrogantly sure that the nonsense you're peddling is true.
The completed design dimensions, as suggested by Petrie's survey and later studies, are estimated to have originally been 280 cubits in height by 440 cubits in length at each of the four sides of its base. These proportions equate to π/2 to an accuracy of better than 0.05% (corresponding to the approximation of π as 22/7). Some Egyptologists consider this to have been the result of deliberate design proportion[14]. Verner wrote, "We can conclude that although the ancient Egyptians could not precisely define the value of π, in practice they used it".[15] Petrie, author of Pyramids and Temples of Gizeh, who was the first accurate surveyor of Giza and the excavator and surveyor of the Pyramid of Meidum, concluded: "but these relations of areas and of circular ratio are so systematic that we should grant that they were in the builders design".[16] Earlier in the chapter he wrote more specifically, that: “We conclude therefore that the approximation of 7 to 22 as the ratio of diameter to circumference was recognised”.[17] These proportions equated to the four outer faces sloping by 51.843° or 51° 50′ 34″, which would have been understood and expressed by the Ancient Egyptians as a seked slope of 5½ palms[18].

You say you "know sh*t" that I don't know, yet you seem not to be willing to share that knowledge. Unless you actually tell me why the accepted value of Pi is wrong, I'm going to have to think that you actually DON'T know sh*t.
I don't know what Jain's formula is for Pi based on Phi, but anyone can find a "relationship" between Pi and Phi by plugging in a manufactured constant. However the real trick is to prove that the constant used to show that relationship is meaningful, or just a made-up number that gets you close to Pi.
Could you please post Mr. Jain's formula? You seem convinced he is right, so you must have it.

I don't have it.
I don't really need it?

OK, let me get this straight (because now I'm not sure what you are trying to argue)...

And if CHiram_Abiff wants to present his case for the accepted value of Pi being wrong, then he should start his own thread, along with evidence backing up his claim. He can also discuss the relationship between Pi and the Great Pyramid in that thread (and again do so with evidence).

1/ did the Egyptian use your pi or 22/7?
2/ is the swastika a diplomat for to arrive at a solution for pi?
3/ is the 16x16 grid connected to that solution for pi and the pythagorean lambdoma?
these 3 questions only requires 3 simple answers.

CHiram_Abiff, please start a separate thread and please don't do it in the science forum unless you have scientific proof to back up your claims, which obviously, you don't.

No, it didn't. You vomited specious ignorance on the thread, then got confused when people called you out, as this particular specious ignorance you seem to think is real. In the ensuing bout cognitive dissonance, you somehow convinced yourself that you were, in fact, right all along. Which you weren't.
Aaaah good ol' "esoteric" enthusiasts on ATS. Always good for a laugh, and can always be relied on to derail a thread like no one's business.
