How To Fathom Pi: Amazing Visual Illustrations Distribution of the first 123,201 digits of π mapped onto a red-yellow-blue Brewer palette and placed as circles on an Archimedean spiral by Martin Krzywinski Pi is, quite possibly, the most famous number known to man.* This fact is a little bit ironic, as we don’t actually have a number for pi. Well, not a complete number anyways, because pi never ends. If you try to pin it down to the decimal, you can’t do it—the decimal representation goes on endlessly, and it never settles into a repeating patters. Hence, all the fame. If you are unfamiliar with this number, pi is the mathematical constant that represents the ratio of a circle’s circumference to its diameter, and it is typically written as 3.14159 . However, (despite some minor set backs) the quest to understand pi continues. Recently, Cristian Ilies Vasile created an amazing way to visualize pi. This visual representation was created by a 41 year old individual who suffered brain damage after being attacked by muggers.

The Internet in Real-Time Mirror's Edge Parkour POV Body Painter Transforms Humans Into Breathtaking Portraits Of Animals There’s more to this beautiful heron than meets the eye. It’s actually a human body covered intricately in paint. The stunning work was created by artist Shannon Holt, a body painter from Florida who’s known for her ability to transform the human body into a canvas for beautiful art. The piece is part of Holt’s “Florida Wildlife Series,” a collection of several animal portraits, all painstakingly drawn on human bodies. In a May interview with the Daytona Beach News-Journal, Holt explained what it is about body painting as a medium that she loves so much. “You can have a really beautiful work that transforms the body into a human sculpture or abstract piece that touches on art history, or is a master copy of an Italian Renaissance painting,” she told the news outlet. She added that she loves the “ephemeral” nature of body painting. Scroll down to see more images of Holt’s "Florida Wildlife Series." Ryder Gledhill / Shannon Holt / Caters News Honey Bees

If sweeping, outrageous conclusions be Metaxas bread-and-butter, than his Wall Street Journal article is perhaps his magnum opus. It’s a doozy. After subtitling his work “The odds of life existing on another planet grow ever longer. The arguments aren’t new. Today there are more than 200 known parameters necessary for a planet to support life—every single one of which must be perfectly met, or the whole thing falls apart.
