Recently a crop circle appeared at Barbury Castle which astrophysicist Mike Reed noticed was a depiction of pi.

On looking at the Barbary Castle pattern the ratio of the angles of the radial jumps is apparently the first ten (10) digits of the mathematical
constant Pi ( the ratio of the of circumference of a circle to the diameter)

I found this absolutely fascinating, and wondered if someone was trying to tell us something. And even if it was a hoax, it's brilliant.
As I sat there staring at this crop circle trying to find different ways of interpreting it, I decided to open up Photoshop and recreate the diagram
myself. Except instead of drawing lines, I filled in the spaces.

Notice that where the 3 starts, it's on the same line as where the number ends (4) on the outside of the pattern. I wondered if there was a way
mathematically to connect the circle back to itself. After all, if the universe can do it effortlessly, then surely there's an answer in
mathematics. Then I noticed something...
I had only counted the area that I filled in. What if I were to count it's opposite, the light spaces?
So I added the two numbers up... figured maybe 3.14 is just an infinite curve, so it's needs it's "other half" to connect the full circle.
3.141592654 + 7.969518456 = 11.11111111 / 10 = 1.111111111
So if 1.111111111 = 1, then 9 skips 10 and goes straight to 11.
Could it be so simple?
A dual nature in numbers seems to appear when the 0s are gone.

A pattern emerges...
Add 0s and the pattern starts narrowing after the first 10 rather than continuing as above. Could this be it? A simple flaw in our number system?
Maybe I'm on to something, maybe not. If anything, I hope this can act as an inspiration for someone else to fill in the gaps.
