Today's Value for Pi
is Incorrect

    Throughout the history of mathematics it has been found that infinity can be tricky, in fact, very, very tricky. And, considering this essay, when working with infinity you must be aware that in three dimensional reality, a.k.a. the real world, or the world we live in, infinity cannot exist between two points.
    It is always important to distinguish what can exist only in the imagination from what exists simultaneously in the imagination and in the real world. Since pi is used to represent a real, material object, it cannot be infinite.
    To prove that infinity cannot exist between two points in the real world—the imagination, three dimensional reality, mathematics, and logic will be used:
    1. Consider two objects in space. They start traveling away from each other faster and faster, but no matter how fast they go nor how long they travel there will never be an infinite distance between them. Picture this in your imagination.
    This is logical proof that infinity cannot exist between two objects in the real world, but this is an expanding distance proof. What about as two objects come closer together? Can there be an infinite, diminishing distance between them? This is an important question for determining pi, because pi is an infinite number which is getting closer and closer as it closes in on an infinitely distant end point.
   One must understand that numbers do not exist in Nature—they are a man made tool. In Nature a distance isn’t determined by numbers. When you cross a certain distance, numbers will not keep you from getting there. In the real world infinity does not exist in a distance.
    Zeno's paradox is an example of how numbers can be manipulated to create untruths in three dimensional reality.
    2. For the second proof I will use Zeno's paradox, but I will use a different example than what he used.
    When I take a stride to move across the living room, I first have to move my foot to one half of my stride, and then I have to move to the next half of the distance and then the next half and the next half and so on into infinity. This means my foot is getting closer and closer to the floor, but it will never complete the stride because it has to go an infinite distance. But Zeno takes it a step further, he states before I can reach half my stride I first have to reach half of the distance of half my stride, but I have to reach half of that distance, and half of that distance and half that distance, ad infinitum. And this means my foot will never leave the floor.
    And therefore, he concludes this will be a limit for every physical action. From this he believes motion does not exist. "Motion is a figment of our imagination," he says.
    But we know motion is a reality, and I can walk across the floor. Therefore there cannot be an infinite distance within a distance in the real world.
    The solution to this paradox was not found for nearly 2,500 years.
