Actually if you add 1 to every digit in pi you would not get the sequence. It is when you add 1 to only the first 21 digits of pi that you get the sequence.

yes i agree with you

What for you do this thing?

hardly math.

yeah, i was gonna say, it should be explained that this sequence never ends and that it has NOTHING to do with actual math.

Pi has nothing to do with mathematics? Oh sure it was something that Wordsworth wrote in one of his poems - clearly language. No wait, its a trick - you can't have a decimal that never repeats and never terminates. Uh - maybe it's an optical illusion? On the other hand, Buffon invented a probability experiment that calculates a value for pi. http://www.angelfire.com/wa/hurben/buff.html

Maybe pi is nothing more than a chance random number?
