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 when
working with infinity you must be aware that in three dimensional
reality, infinity cannot exist between two points.
To prove this statement—the imagination, three dimensional reality, math, and
logic will be used:
1. Let's consider two
rocks 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.
2. For the second
proof I will use Zeno's paradox, but I will use a different example
than what he uses.
My stride is 3
feet from the tip of my toe on one foot to the back of my heel on
the other foot. When I take the stride to move across the living
room, I first have to move my foot one half the stride or 1.5 feet,
and next I have to move one half the stride of the distance which
remains or a total of 2.25 feet, and then I have to move one half
that distance or 2.625, and then one half that distance or 2.8107,
and then half or 2.90445, ad infinitum. Which means my foot is
getting closer and closer to the end of my stride which is 3 feet,
but I will never complete the stride because it has to go an
infinite distance. But Zeno takes it a step further, and I'm sure
with tongue in cheek he indicates that before I can reach half my
stride I first have to reach half of the distance of half my stride
or 0.75 feet, but I have to reach half of that distance or 0.375
feet, and half of that distance or 0.1857 feet, and half that
distance or 0.090445 feet, ad infinitum. And this means my foot will
never leave the floor. And therefore, he concludes, 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. I can see
Zeno, after his meeting with the other philosophers, going home and
laughing his ass off. The solution to this paradox was not discovered
for nearly 2,500 years.
