False. There an infinite number of rational numbers.
Each individual rational number is finite, whereas each individual irrational number is infinite.

Lets run through what we do know about Phi and the Golden Ratio, the Pentagon, Pentagram, Decagram, Decagon and Dodecahedron are all related and fit together like a glove, but only by using ten points in a circle, not five, but this doesn't complete a master key shape, but does give a 3D dodecahedron in the centre:-

Hi ThatDidHappen,
Another way to put Phi is 5^.5*.5+5. a lot of the shapes generated are to the power of five anyway!
There are scientists that feel that the Cosmos is shaped like a Dodecahedron, but isn't yet proven, however Plato thought the same thousands of years ago!

The Golden Ratio has been found in solid state matter as shown on link below:-
www.sciencedaily.com...
If you attach a Golden Spiral to its mirror image you will find you get a cardioid, very like the first sequence of the Mandelbrot Set:-

To show a larger image of this Envelope Cardioid but only placing one pentagon shape in the inner circle where the envelopes cross at ten equal points is below:-

I would like to stay neutral in this debate, but allow my caustic humour, if there is a Creator or God, and God is love perhaps the symbol of love is a cardioid LOL.

No. Pi is not infinite. It is the ratio between the diameter of a circle and its circumference. A definite, not infinite thing. The square root of 2 is not infinite either.
No number is infinite. A set of numbers can be.

Yes.
And there are an infinite number of irrational numbers.
And there are an infinite number of rational numbers.
And there are more irrational numbers than rational numbers.
So...what?
