    if pi=3 then

    c2 ≠ a2 + b2

    instead it might be something like

    c3 ≠ a3 + b3

    and rigid objects would not be able to rotate



    consider the simplest case:

    if c = a + b then a circle becomes a diamond and pi = 4

    and if you draw a circle (diamond) then rotate your coordinate system 45 degrees and draw the circle again
    you end up with a diamond inside a diamond.

    It would not be 3 because that's not what Pi is fundamentally by definition. You don't have to remember the long number. You can mesure it because of what it is. I sure hope this is not going where I think it's going :P
    It is by will alone I set my mind in motion.

    (5 cubits - 1 handbreadth) * 2pi = 30 cubits


    handbreadth = 0.22535 cubits
