Pi's Recursiveness [duplicate]

I don't know if this will make sense, but: If $\pi$ is infinite and contains all strings of numbers including those of infinite length, then it must contain $\sqrt2$, and if $\sqrt2$ is infinite and ...

Will the Declaration of Independence ever show up in pi? [duplicate]

If pi goes on forever and is completely random, if ascii would be mapped onto pi would you eventually find the Declaration of Independence in it? If so, by what digit of pi can we reasonably expect ...

Is this a true statement? [duplicate]

This is a 9GAG picture I saw tonight. The way it's put, it is evidently false, since 0.10100100010000… (the powers of 10 all in a row) is definitely decimal, infinite and nonrepeating (or in one word, ...

Can every string of numbers be found in the number pi (cfr. infinite monkey theorem)? [duplicate]

The infinite monkey theorem states that a monkey hitting keys at random on a typewriter keyboard for an infinite amount of time will almost surely type a given text, such as the complete works of ...

Does digits of pi contain all possible substrings? [duplicate]

We just had another pi day, and once again people talk about how infinite pi is, and that it contains everything. It seems to me completely irrational to expect that just because something is ...

Can any number sequence be found in $\pi$? [duplicate]

I read somewhere that any finite number sequence must be found in $\pi$. For example, $0998975645455$ must be somewhere in the digits of $\pi$. The reason for this was that $\pi$ is irrational, ...

Decimal Expansion of Pi

Sorry if this has been asked before, but I have a query about the notion that the decimal expansion of $\pi$ contains every possible string of numbers (please note that I am only a "casual" maths ...

To what extent is pi non-repeating? [closed]

I've been told that pi is an irrational (infinite and non-repeating) number. But to what extent is it non-repeating? It obviously repeats individual numbers, and I find it hard to believe that it ...

Pi might contain all finite sets, can it also contain infinite sets?

In a previous, and quite popular, question it was discussed about whether or not $\pi$ contains all finite number combinations. Let us assume for a moment that $\pi$ does in fact contain all finite ...

Is infinite sequence of irrational numbers digits mathematically observable?

I have a little question. In fact, is too short. Is infinite sequence of irrational numbers digits mathematically observable? I would like to explain it by example because the question seems ...

Is π normal in base π?

This question states that π is normal: Does Pi contain all possible number combinations? My understanding of this is that it means that the statistically, the distribution of every number is equal ...

Patterns in pi in “Contact”

In Carl Sagan's novel Contact, the main character (Ellie Arroway) is told by an alien that certain megastructures in the universe were created by an unknown advanced intelligence that left messages ...
I'm new here as you can see. There is a mystery about $\pi$ that I heard before and want to check if its true. They told me that if I convert the digits of $\pi$ in letters eventually I could read ...
