In mathematics, the polar coordinate system is a two-dimensional coordinate system in which each point on a plane is determined by a distance from a fixed point and an angle from a fixed direction.

So, converting from a 2d system to a 3d system is pretty simple?
I was working in 3d (X, Y and Z axis) but apparently I was OT.
Tell me more.

Funny....
Those are the "variables" I used to use to draw circles when I was learning to program.

void draw_circle ()
[
int x, y;
int length = 50; // radius
float angle = 0.0; // starting angle
float angle_stepsize = 0.1; // increment angle by degree

// go through all angles from 0 to 2 * PI radians
while (angle < 2 * PI)
[
// calculate x, y from a vector with known length and angle
x = length * cos (angle);
y = length * sin (angle);

putpixel (screen,
x + SCREEN_W / 2, y + SCREEN_H / 2,
makecol (255, 255, 255));
angle += angle_stepsize;
]
]

Here's an imaginary experiment: If you draw a (perfect) circle and bisect the circle with an (imaginary) line to mark the starting/ending point, the (imaginary) line has two sides when focused. Normal calculation of pi uses the both sides of this imaginary line - the other side as the starting point and the other as the ending point - and thus provides the arithmetical value of 3.141... But then the circle is not full - there is infinitesimal gap because of this line.
On the other hand, if the same side of the imaginary line would be used, the circle would be overlapped.
The only way to get to the exact middle of this imaginary line is to use the golden mean derived from fibonacci sequence.

As there is no perfect line nor a perfect circle in nature, it seems that nature (as human) is constantly approximating/perfecting to the golden mean, so the arithmetic value for the pi is naturally endless/transcendential.

Please disprove me or accept as a fact. Do not approve indoctrinated "facts" that blind you.

Why and who have made this pact the pi must be calculated like that - which is not any way related to nature (as fibonacci sequence and golden ratio and hence the pi value of 3.1446... are)?

People who are better at math than you and I are.

Pi is based on a circle. Pi is not based on nature, and neither is the Fibonacci sequence. It's the other way around. We find in nature the Fibonacci sequence. It is NOT a perfect relationship that we see in nature. If you were to measure shells of nautiluses and sunflowers, etc, you would see that they are "off" by varying degrees. They are not clone stamped reproductions.

The mathematical proofs for this are the ideal "perfect" representation of the golden ratio and such, but even then, they are forever expanding; they never end. They do at some point become so close to other numbers that we "snip off" the end of the sequence and consider it trivial.

It's like how .99999999999999999999999999999999...going on and on and on, is actually equal to 1.

9.999999999999999999 = 10
- .999999999999999999 = - 1
=
9 = 9

the .9 (repeating) that I subtracted leaves 9, which is what we get subtracting 1 from 10. Therefore, .9 (repeating) equals 1.

Your post is not helping at all to the dilemma. Please give it some thought.

Very Interesting....but it needs to be stated also that the Fibonacci Ratio does not start out at 1.618 but only approaches it after N+.....in the sequence (ie, 8/3 = 1.625....21/13=1.615...55/34=1.617+).

.. From vortexspace.org...

It has been proved by earth's thought-leaders in mathematics that Pi can be exactly derived from a whole number and that the previously used value of Pi by "legacy mathematics" is approximately 0.0958% too small. This becomes significant at the level of precision needed in producing synchronously reinforcing magnetic-field producing structures.

This is possible because a new discovery has been made allowing phi to be defined in terms of a ratio of the area and circumference of a circle. [...]

Current methods of finding Pi using "successive approximation" of a curve into lines fall short. Pi cannot be solved via successive approximation and will always come up as short (which is why current methods show it is 3.141) - this is because of the fractal nature of space and that a curve in space can actually be subdivided infinitely. So no matter how many times you divide a curve into a straight line and do another successive approximation - there will still be a portion of the curve, or another crevice inside of the curve - that you still have not gotten. Thus all previous methods at calculating pi from successive approximation of curves into lines fall short because they are missing small crevices in the curve.

I think the change is a symbolic reflection of what is happening in the world. It is a geometric venue of producing a forced conformity. The "eye of god" is a contrived solution. It is a repetition of the beehive construct and can also be applied to the control mechanisms of restrictions and forced constructs placed upon human beings to achieve a static form of unity.

The value Sqrt[16/((Sqrt[5] + 1)/2)] converted to base (Sqrt[5] + 1)/2) ( or 4/sqrt(phi) to base phi ) gives of course the most beautiful and elegant representation of this (and first time ever published):

RealDigits[sqrt(16/((sqrt(5)+1)/2)), GoldenRatio, 111][[1]] or RealDigits[4/sqrt(GoldenRatio), GoldenRatio, 111][[1]]

Result:

[1, 0, 0, 0, 1, 0, 0, 1, 0, 1, 0, 1, 0, 1, 0, 0, 1, 0, 1, 0, 1, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 1, 0, 0, 1, 0, 0, 0, 0, 1, 0, 1, 0, 1, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 1, 0, 0, 0, 0, 1, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 1, 0, 0, 0, 0, 1, 0, 0, 1, 0, 1, 0, 0, 1, 0, 0, 0, 1, 0, 0, 1, 0, 1, 0, 0, 1, 0, 0, 0, 1, 0, 0, 0, 1, 0, 0, 1, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 1, 0, 1, 0]

And as a constant (usually in base 10)

Pi (3.14159265...) can only be rational if you make 2 circles one inside the other put 2 on both sides of the inside one which is truthfully the same as the outer circle their both 0s right
The inside one just has a circle +1 and a -1 or -1, +1 or circle ( A ) and ( B ) the center one we will call ( O ) and the outer ( o ) So ( O ) = (o) but ( A ) and ( B ) do not equal ( o )
but each one A or B does equal ( O ) the center circle But ( A ) and ( B ) are polarities to the other

You see Infinity is both within and without the ( O ) center circle and ( o ) outer circle making them 2 the same But one different the ones ( A ) and ( B ) are only different from ether ones + or - perspective if you use all the 3 inside circles radius ( A ) ( O ) ( B ) and across the big circle ( o ) and rap the central ( O ) with that you get 9.1428571428571428571428571428571... much more rational

And the Inverse to which is

we view the forward progression of time like in terms of our life, the lives of other living things because even planet and stars are living things that we measure the universe by and wonder why it all doesn't seem to fit together just like we cant seem to find the end of Pi

But all living things are fated to die eventually thus living is dieing and dieing is living right so our belief in understanding time as having a forward motion is relative to the world that we live and see before us.

This leads me to believe that time is in fact moving backwards which is why all living things whether plant, animal, planets or the stars fight against force of death/gravity to exist
which makes sense since seeing only matter not dark matter or whatever is made of living things you cant really see dead things to well

"Suddenly you’re awake. But where are you? Everywhere you look there’s white. White walls hug and confine you, stretching deeper and deeper, marking the boundaries of a straight, narrow, featureless hallway. You’re bewildered, but who wouldn’t be? Finally you stand and look behind you. All white, everything, going back to where it vanishes. You push against the hard white floor, swaying and almost losing your balance because you’ve been asleep so long. Looking ahead, you realize the hallway is not exactly like it was behind you. Almost the same, but not quite. Way, way in the distance you can see some specks. And, reasoning that specks are better than nothing, you begin walking toward them. It takes a long time, but then the specks grow and define themselves. They have become signs, gold in color and arrow-shaped. They hang at the end of the hallway, and you can see lettering on them. Closer and closer you walk, until you can see that there’s a second hallway perpendicular to this one. One arrow points left and reads: “Casino.” The other points right and reads: “Life.” Choose Life.-- "America's Mad Genius" Mike Caro

Now think about the inverse of this white hallway its just a black one right all in all the same but both as one to the other are different. This is vital to fully understand anything One seeks to
