that's exactly what i've been thinking =o)

when i started this quest, albeit ages ago,

i had only what maths public school left me

go check any of my ancient posts to prove it

but now that i know math

with just basic trig to start

- OMG, pi is everywhere -

i mean, i knew what pi was before

and kept regularly tripping over it

so much so that, had i kept at it then

with no knowledge of pi, still tripping

- i would have had to name it something -

there's no avoiding the elephant element

it's like the pole in the center of a tent

it's funny how silly over-the-top this is

...the only point is

once you know pi

you have increased your knowledge potential

it's like turning the light on ...in a candy store

that's one of the purposes layouts like these serve

even if you say it's accidental, totally not intended

then, that's the weirdest coincidence, then, isn't it?

it functions as an ideal geometry lesson without trying

poetic congruence to that the stones floated into place

it also seems to be acknowledging standard error margins

as if some lines are meant to be made of dots or dashes

there's even ideas to put pins in, to come back to later

ok, there's a point equidistant from all three centers

what math do i need to calculate their improbability?

...factorials in the denominators, gentle-math-fans...

way lower odds than any royal flush, or lotto ticket...

and it even gives room for those who wish to say no

stay blind if you like, it may be an intended blessing

then your part in this is to just demonstrate ironically

"yes, this curve is obviously tending towards infinity"

;o)

pi = 3.14159...

22 / 7 = 3.142857...

256 / 81 = 3.1605...

2^8 / 3^3 = ~ pi

(2)^(2^3) / 3^3 = ~ pi

( 2 • 2 • 2 • 2 • 2 • 2 • 2 • 2 ) / ( 3 • 3 )

...pausing for effect, here...

that's "two to the eighth, OVER three cubed"

aka "two to the two cubed, OVER three cubed"

maybe if you have a total ignorance in math

the blatant significance of that may elude...

but, falsely claiming that only makes me feel:

almost too smart so far for this entire planet

and i know that couldn't possibly be the case

was that your or anyone's desired intention?

(we may have an auxiliary conspiracy theory)

just acknowledging the prime meridian, maybe

just as we peasants bow when passing royalty

how else would such a monument

make reference to such a fact?

the kind of thing which

should not go unnoticed

or, it gets you in the general neighborhood

let the foreman crunch the heavy numbers

and anyways, however more easily derived

they're still significant themselves...

ballpark estimates use cornerstones

...and a vital skill without calculators

here, my math prof regularly puts on tests

things to reward any real mathematicians:

substituting "pi squared" for "little g"

or substituting "e to the i pi" for -1

when cos(pi) would do as well

...it's the secret trap door that

only a real coin will fall through

sifting the slugs from our change pockets

not rewarding candy for any wooden nickels

so the guy who comes along n sez

that he still can't see anything

even after meticulously explained

may be just agreeing to disagree?

or anyways seems to be acting as if

that's the only offer on the table

...so, what i think he's saying is:

that permission no longer necessary

a permission slip from the principal

some written confirmation of this math

that would have been considered a secret...

as, in any event, doesn't it make more sense

they would've burned any plans intentionally?

ceremoniously, say it's an offering to the gods

preventing them falling into the wrong hands

in other news, the aquatic ape is the missing link

and good luck finding any verification of that ever
