2023 Press Release about Pi (π)

Toward a Global Celebration of Mathematics

Over ten new topics to explore and celebrate

**Introduction**: A working draft of the press release — https://81018.com/pointing/ — was first written for academics then it was toned down to become a general press release and its purpose was greatly expanded. A goal is to have several versions of that article, each weighted for particular audiences. The next audience to reach are the online-broadcast-printed *news outlets* so they run a press release a few days *after* March 14. That version will be emerge here, then a new release of 500 words will be done. The goal is to stir people to talk about entirely new dimensions of pi.

A new version for academics with the benefit of feedback will be done.

This press release may be run anywhere in the world on any publication, news broadcast, or website. It may also be re-written to eliminate footnotes.

**A Call to Expand Our Understanding of Pi Day (2023)**

**For immediate release:**

**Background**: Bruce Camber, the Managing Director of the Center for Perfection Studies in Austin, Texas, has been critical of most Pi Day celebrations. He has advocated that Pi Day be addressed by further considering the three functions that define it: continuity, symmetry, and harmony. “A core part of science is to define its functional dependencies; yet dimensional analysis starting at the Planck base units and extending through to electroweak scale has been virtually ignored. It’s an Achilles Heel for science and humanity.”

In 2016 the Center Perfection Studies did the first mathematical map of the universe that starts with the Planck base units and goes to the current time. It is a base-2 map with 202 notations. In 1957 Kees Boeke did a base-10 map of much of the universe that captured the widespread attention (credits within films, *Cosmic Zoom*, National Film Board of Canada, 1968; *Powers of Ten*, Charles and Ray Eames, 1968; and *Cosmic Voyage*, IMAX and Smithsonian National Air & Space Museum, 1996).

“The difference between base2 and base-10 is that our base-2 map encourages scholars to look for the functional dependencies,” Camber went on, “There is causal efficacy between notations. Dimensional analysis is a key.”

**History**: In 1988 Larry Shaw of the San Francisco science museum, Exploratorium, started the first known Pi Day celebration. By 2009 Pi Day was recognized as a national holiday in the USA. In November 2019 UNESCO adopted Pi Day as the International Day of Mathematics. The challenge each year is to do something significant on that day and progress beyond pie-eating contests and the recitation of some part of the 100-trillion known digits of pi (calculated using Google Cloud in 2022 by Emma Haruka Iwao).

The Center for Perfection Studies believes that Pi Day could be a rapprochement to explore the first principles of pi and to better define the very nature of pi. That it has real potential to define common foundations that could bring people together. heretofore has not been explored. The Center is seeking to partner with UNESCO (emails to Audrey Azoulay, Director-General, and David Atchoarena, Director, UNESCO Institute for Lifelong Learning, Hamburg, Germany) to make Pi Day a true International Day of Mathematics. The center’s most simple math — multiplying by 2 — encapsulates the universe within just 202 notations (https://81018.com/chart/).

In the center’s study, pi (π) is defined by continuity, symmetry, and harmony. Circles and spheres are derivative. There are no less than ten key points that they ask people to consider:

**Three perfect functions**have not taken together as a functional whole.*Continuity*is the never-ending, never-repeating numbers of pi.*Symmetry*is the deeper nature within those numbers that become relations which become circles and spheres. And,*harmony*is an even deeper dynamic nature of the sphere that was first opened in 1820 by Joseph Fourier. A most simple*harmony*is found within every sphere. p;- Taken as a whole,
**continuity-symmetry-harmony**are both finite and infinite. **Our scholars continue to build on Fourier’s insights**. Visit with Poincaré, Gauss, Planck, Einstein, Smale, Milnor and many others who uncovered even more exacting relations with pi. Yet, at its core, continuity defines time; symmetry defines space, and harmony defines the dynamics of space-time.**Perfected states within space-time**. The Planck base units defined by Max Planck in 1899 use dimensionless constants which render natural units and a vision and definition of the smallest possible units of space and time. Simple logic holds the smallest are also the first, the starting points of our universe.At the bottom of the graphic on your right there is Planck Time and Planck Length where the first infinitesimal-and-perfect spheres emerge. Using Planck’s numbers, one sphere per unit of Planck Time and Planck Length is logically defined. There are just 202 doublings to explore to encapsulate the known universe. These numbers keep the score.**At that rate,****539 tredecillion spheres per second****are generated.****Those numbers are timestamped with****sphere-stacking**.**Then the numbers are geometrize with****cubic-close packing of equal spheres**. In the first notations, there is an absence of gaps. The basic geometries all fit perfectly. It is hypothesized that quantum fluctuations cannot manifest until at least Notation-50.**Langlands programs****and****string theory****are further defined with pi**.**Then the known equations****that define our foundations emerge**. By the 202nd notation, we have our universe, everything, everywhere for all time, all intimately connected by infinitesimal spheres.**All 202 notations are always active**. Many scientists say “*all time is now*.” Each notation adds definition. As we go down the scale, there is increased particularity and coherence. The only possible singularity is in the very beginning, and even then, it is a convergence of equations. Exacting definitions of the infinitesimally small, first start within groups, and then obviously become part of a working system that involves all 202 notations.**Logically there is a domain with no gaps**. Perfectly fitting geometries exists prior to the emergence of quantum fluctuations.[2]**Values**. Those perfectly-fitting geometries may possibly account for the first 50 notations where the continuity-symmetry-harmony of the spheres creates no gaps and becomes the basis for value.

Camber concludes, “With all this as a platform, Pi Day could be turned in to an extraordinary International Day of Mathematics. It could become an exploration of the positions and functions of infinitesimal spheres, particularly the generation and labelling of every sphere after the very first. And, it just might begin to fill in the gaps between the Planck Scale and the Electroweak Scale as well as between the Lambda Cold Dark Matter model (or the Standard Model for Cosmology) and the Standard Model for Particle Physics.”

“It is not beyond our imaginations and our capabilities. Thank you.”

**[1] Pointing beyond circles and spheres**. Between the finite-infinite transformation and between the faces of continuity-symmetry-harmony (CSH) are equations. Many equations converge within the numbers that make up the Planck base units. Although there are alternatives to the Planck numbers (Stoney, Ralston, and ISO numbers), they’ll use the same dynamics (and equations). Eventually we will probably be using new ISO base units, yet I expect the results will be very similar. That convergence of equations is the point. It is the necessary convergence of the finite-infinite. It’s also the beginning of value.

Bringing the infinite into the equation is difficult for many. Within this website, you will find this declaration:

All other definitions of the infinite are put on hold. Most are personal definitions that come from personal experiences and family history. That is one’s own business, not ours. If those beliefs help you through life, that is great. Our goal here is to engage those principles and functions that give rise to mathematics, physics, and eventually all the other sciences.fromContinuity-Symmetry-Harmony(CSH),1972

**CSH is the infinite and the finite**. Its first expression as the finite is the Planck base units. The first expression of those units is an infinitesimal sphere. This is an unprecedented definition of the finite-infinite relation. Doing a simple calculation with Planck Time, assuming one sphere per unit of Planck Time, renders 539 tredecillion spheres per second. That could be considered a new definition of the cosmological constant. To begin to grasp that natural expansion, we apply base-2 notation and the first second, manifests within Notation-143. The first year manifests within Notation-169. The first 1000 years manifest within Notation-179. The first million years manifest within Notation-189 and the first billion years within Notation-199.

The only place where these ** 202 base-2 notations** that functionally outline the universe have been studied is within and throughout this website. For more: https://81018.com/inflaton/#202

**Fourier transform**. Every formula that involves pi (starting with the Fourier transform) needs to be re-reviewed in light of CSH and the 202 base-2 notations. Pi is everywhere.

**[2] Geometries of indeterminacy**. There is a look and feel of quantum fluctuations; the mysteries are all within the geometries. It appears that scholars were first foiled by Aristotle (384-321 BC). Five tetrahedrons create a gap that he missed; and for 1800 years his mistake was repeated by scholars. That is worth pondering. Aristotle was so great it took 1800 years to countermand his mistake. And, it is still untouchable. That correction was eventually forgotten until in 1926, a little-known MIT mathematician, Dirk Struik, rekindled that scholarship. Struik’s work did not receive much attention until in 2012 when two scholars, Jeffrey Lagarias and Chaunming Zong, lifted it up again. Yet, these two mathematicians were more interested in packing densities. There is no exploration of the meaning of the gap. Subsequently, in May 2022, a five octrahedral-gap was first introduced to the world from within this website and questions were asked of many scholars, “What are these gaps all about?”

**Our charts, interpretations and prognostications**. Simple logic, simple math, and simple geometries render our charts, interpretations and prognostications. It all awaits critical review, so until then, there will be more to come.
