# Is there a 3-dimensional pattern to Pi?

This is very out of character for me and to all, I apologize.

But I was thinking about Pi. The randomness of Pi.

Scientists and mathematicians have been looking for a pattern to Pi since forever.

But (as far as I am aware along with Bing searches) they have been looking for patterns in a linear fashion.

What if we twisted Pi and used it like a Fibonacci sequence?

If we "curved" Pi, twisted Pi, gave PI more than 2 dimensions. . . . would a pattern emerge?

Give me a moment...

Nope, sorry can't help.

Well, you tried.

Thanks!

The ratio of a circle's circumference to its diameter.

Or tasty coconut cream.

I'm glad this isn't a podcast because I would have thought "why would that be so out of character"?

Its a good thing math allows us to round numbers, other wise we'd have to fudge it, nothing would ever get done.

That 3-dimensional enough for you?

...and now I'm hungry. Kids, being a smartass makes you fat!

I only do Tide-podcasts.

A point is a singular dimension “object”, which becomes a line when extended into a two dimensional space and a plane when extended into a three dimensional space.

A square becomes a cube in three dimensions.

How does a circle become a sphere, instead of a cylinder, in three dimensions?

Pi refers to a circle’s (two dimensional object) circumference; can Pi even be applicable in higher dimensions?

If the answer is yes, I’m sensing Aliens!

All I know is...

Pi are round, cornbread R square. If you make cornbread round it's Pi

If you bend pi at the edges and fold it you can make it three dimensional. Just sayin'

I'm sure theoretical mathematicians have considered this already, their job and all.

I'm sure they have.

Just can't find any evidence of it.

Ive been pretty sure that's why the flat earth theory is still looking for fact. Once we do something along those lines maybe, maybe a different way, we will figure out earths real shape right? We will even be able to make all maps the same instead of them all being different. Possibly have a point maybe, this I have not thought about much nor will I lol. If we don't know a circles real shape, how do we know the earths? I've claimed the earth isn't round, oval or flat because of these unanswered question. I don't have anything to back it up though so ya lol.

I found this. Hope it helps. I'll be honest I understood some of it but not all of it.

There is...the spiral. Divide 22 by 7 and you will see. Double Prime Divided by a Prime.

I only know one piece of the Pi ...

If you turn the word PI over you get IP it will will connect you with almost infinite series of number adresses from where you can connect almost the whole world at lightspeed

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.

But numbers do have a pattern, re; Fibonacci.
