Dear all,

I explored the value of PI up to 10 million digits with the following link

LINK REMOVED

From here I realized that it included many scientific constants. Below are some examples

• …1618033…
Where
1.618033 ~ golden ratio to be used in design, painting, and architecture etc.
(Source: http://mathworld.wolfram.com)
• …271828…
Where
2.71828 ~ Euler’s number
(Source: http://mathworld.wolfram.com)
• …667408…
Where
6.67408 ~ constant of gravitation
(Source: http://physics.nist.gov)
• …8987…
Where 8.987 ~ Coulomb constant in electrostatic
(Source: http://scienceworld.wolfram.com/physics)
• …885418…
Where 8.85418 ~ electric constant (Or Vacuum permittivity)
(Source: http://physics.nist.gov)
• …6626070…
Where 6.626070 ~ Planck constant
(Source: http://physics.nist.gov)
• …16021766…
Where 1.6021766 ~ elementary charge (Charge of electron)
(Source: http://physics.nist.gov)
• …9109383…
Where 9.109383 ~ electron mass
(Source: http://physics.nist.gov)
• …980665…
Where 9.80665 ~ acceleration of gravity
(Source: http://physics.nist.gov)
• …602214085…
Where 6.02214085 ~ Avogadro constant
(Source: http://physics.nist.gov)
• …1380648…
Where 1.380648 ~ Boltzmann constant
(Source: http://physics.nist.gov)
• …167262…
Where 1.67262 ~ Proton mass
(Source: http://physics.nist.gov)

And maybe there are more cases. I wonder this interesting finding is only accidental, or there is any implicit rule here.

Any feedback or discussion can be sent to LINK REMOVED
It’s nice if you can share my article in social media for more opinions

I love the smell of numerology in the morning ;)

Of course it is accidental, look hard enough through the decimal places of an irrational number and you'll find your phone number (or any other number you can think of) - maybe not in the first 10 million but the decimals keep going...

Agreed. Links removed.

Originally, I also had the same thinking like yours by considering it as coincident. However I replaced PI with other irrational number,
such as Euler number or golden ratio, and replicated all above testing.
This time these values above could not be found with up to 5 or 6 digits like the result with PI.
So I declare that this is PI's secret that needs to be investigated more

You can declare what you like, you're wrong... if you want to waste your time with numerology go for it, just don't expect anyone to take it seriously :shrug:

PhD - imagine a younger person sees this and doesn't grasp why it's wrong. How would you help them understand?

Apologies if I was a bit curt, lack of coffee... As I said earlier, in any long enough string of random numbers (which the decimal places of an irrational number essentially are) you can find any number you can think of if you look hard enough. I don't know what else I can say...

I'm reminded of this clip from the 1998 movie, Pi
