Para o Dia do Pi
M.C. Escher, Circle Limit with Butterflies (1950)
«- You're telling me there's a message in eleven dimensions hidden deep inside the number pi? Someone in the universe communicates by ... mathematics? But ... help me, I'm really having trouble understanding you. Mathematics isn't arbitrary. I mean pi has to have the same value everywhere. How can you hide a message inside pi? It's built into the fabric of the universe.
- Exactly - She stared at him».
Carl Sagan, Contact (1981).
