Stonehenge and Pi
2012.02.12 - Pi appeared while considering the arc distances between the largest Neolithic stone circles and Stonehenge. The pi numeric string expressing the ratio of arc distances between three sites previously occurred in relation to Stonehenge. Pi has also surfaced when considering astronomy correlations and monument properties. In this most recent instance, the accuracy of the ratio is so impressive a question is posed, "Did the Neolithic builders of the megalithic stone circles intend to express pi?"
.... The arc distances ratio of 1.0 to 31.4168 caught my attention when Stonehenge, Ring of Brodgar, and Avebury were the three site variables .... The margin of error in determining coordinates exceeds the error factor in the hypothetical representation of pi. ... Permalinked on Pi Day 2012.
