Let’s push math to its limits — the smallest number and the largest. No, no, not actual numbers, but as in number theory. Could pi be both the largest and smallest? http://81018.com is where I struggle with it.” -BEC Also: November 2, 2021

Dear Dr. Edward B. Burger,

Congratulations on a life well-lived, excelling with everything you touch. I hope your move to Austin is good. We once lived in Round Rock and it was all a bit sleepy for us.

May I engage your math mind? You’ve said pi is one of the most important numbers…” Do you think perhaps it is the number that guides our earliest universe: https://81018.com/challenge/ My working document to follow it up is: https://81018.com/instance/ Possible? Thank you.
