If it were possible to prove that π is normal
, 'God is Mathematics' would certainly appear somewhere in the digits of pi in both base 27 (any case
plus space) and base 53 (case sensitive
This is also true for the phrases 'Mathematics is just plain stupid', 'Mathematics my arse', 'God is in my arse' and 'Jesus that feels good'.
In fact we would without doubt be able to find in π a sequence of digits in any base, convert them to a binary string and, when sent via gzip to a web browser, they would present users with web site full of annoying flashing pop-ups showing actual photographs of God in my arse, complete with lense flare and bodily fluids.
I must remember to check that out sometime...
2005 update: - modern pop-up blockers and firefox or safari may prvent the pop-ups, but the rest of the gzip argument holds true......
...to those who are offended on religious grounds, have you ever thought that text isn't true? Maybe the written 'Jesus' and the thought can be separated....... to the betterment of us all huh???
