Why haven't you calculated pi to 31.4 trillion digits /g/?

then why don't you try it yourself
circumference/diameter
>>
>>70166977
pi is the ratio of the circumference to the diameter. the ratio is irrational (therefore infinite) but scientists really dont give a fuck past the 10th digit. the only people who really care if pi is infinite or not is esoteric mathematicians and even then its a question of interest more than one of necessity

I find this hard to believe. Did he just use a better calculator than everyone else? It would probably take a life time to write that many digits. So who fucking cares if the man didn't actually do it?
>>
31.4 trillion digits is 32 terabytes of raw data. Unless you're throwing drives at it the only way to calculate that high is to stream the result, deleting what had been already calculated to prevent the system from running out of memory.
In which case, why did he- she- it- shit, whatever it is stop? Let the program run overnight, you'll keep BASH's buffer full and the results won't be saved but you'd pass up 31 trillion in no time.

I would just copy and paste the record calculation, calculate a few more digits to hide my trail, and just RNG the rest. Nobody would bother verifying.

Well, most answers here are quite smart. But considering that pi is infinite because making any circle just means to add more corners to something circle like, and pi is longer the more corners (and the circle more circlely) we add.
And atoms actually are not circle shaped. Doesn't that mean that circles as we understand them don't occur in the universe? Just quantillionagons ?

That is yet to be determined. Some people believe that everything is eventually quantifiable but we have no methods to measure the smallest quanta. Personally, I believe that the universe "wraps around" onto itself, so it effectively has no inner limits, and because measuring is a physical process, we change whatever we are measuring, meaning that we could never precisely define any limits to our physical universe through observation.

A circle has an infinite number of points which create it's perimeter. Any point along it's perimeter is an equal distance from the center of the circle as any other point on the perimeter to the center. This is what a circle is. Compare that to a square which is made up of exactly four equally distanced points.

A circle is an imaginary shape. There is no observable circle known to man in the entire universe. Even a circle drawn perfectly with a protractor is not actually a circle when examined with a microscope. No atom in existence is a circle (or sphere) and no subatomic particle can be measured accurately enough for us to determine the shape.
>>
>>70166850
in practical terms, there's no need to calculate it beyond 30 digits or so, because at that point the size difference would be smaller than an atom.
in theoretical terms, no.
>>
>>70166408
Because there's no point.
>>
>>70167751
Atoms do have shapes, and their shapes were even predicted before we had the technology to confirm their shapes. Because of the nature of quantum particles we cannot describe the exact shape of an atom at a point in time, we can only define the shape using probabilities. Anyway, the way that the nucleus and the electron cloud all "stick together" is somewhat specific for each isotope, and elements with more subatomic particles have more possible "shapes." They are definitely not perfectly round or spherical though. They are more like lumpy jiggling things surrounded by electrons and no part can be pinned down but we can map out possible locations. You can find old black and white recordings of Richard Feynman drawing all the possible shapes of a hydrogen atom on a whiteboard. When a physicist says a particle is spherical it's kinda like saying the Earth is spherical. From a very fuzzy perspective the earth looks spherical but with any precision you quickly find that it isn't.

I'll counter/concur with that by saying, man is an analog being and exists in a state that requires and is dictated by the impossibility of the perfection of the circle but is driven to perfect and quantify said circle. It's the natural state of a mass absent outside forces, so the mere existence of an observer modifies that force... which to me sums up consciousness.
