Life in Pi

I’ve recently read how Pi (as its digits are infinite, being an irrational number) could contain any number that you can think of, that is, every and any possible finite sequence (for example my birthday is found at position 12’474’857; find yours: here).

Obviously, the date of birth is rather a short string, but if you think that any finite sequence could occur somewhere in Pi, this means that not only your birth date is there, but your name too. Yes, you should find the entire Shakespeare’s opera, or that picture of you taken while doing silly stuff should be encoded somewhere in there. Or the entire movie of your entire past, present & future life, shot second by second. Your entire life is already written in Pi, our entire history, all the theories and knowledge you can think of.

Kudos to Pi.
