The Albert Einstein Coincidence Of Pi

Albert Einstein

Nothing too serious today, just Albert Einstein!

Einstein is often attributed as saying: 'Coincidence is God's way of remaining anonymous.' So maybe the following is relevant.

He was born in Ulm, in the Kingdom of W├╝rttemberg in the German Empire on 14 March 1879 or. In the USA you would write this as: 3.14 - and, of course, Pi just happens to be 3.14 - though its decimal representation never ends and therefore lives on forever - one of the aims of the Philosophers' Stone.

Here's a short burst of an extended Pi: 3.141592653589793238462643383279502884197169399375105820974944592307816406286208998628034825342117067 (thought I'd end it on 67 even though it's not out)

Is it a coincidence therefore that Einstein was born on 3.14? Oh, and what about his name:

Eins in German is 'One' and Stein in German means 'Stone' - The Philosophers' Stone?

Going back to Ulm, where Einstein was born, this is now the site of a university based on the idea of it being a 'science city'. The address of the Ulm University is, of course, Albert-Einstein-Allee, Ulm.

Okay, that's it!

  1. Michael Caine's birth-date is also the 14th March and he does the voice of Finn McMissile in the movie "Cars 2".
    The number plate is 314 FMCM which is Caine's birth-date as well as the #Pi
    (with the . missing,of course).
    Finn could also be a nod to infinity,as well.
    There are images and videos at this link -


  2. Do you know - I didn't even realise Pi went on forever, but I never did like maths. That's QI stuff.

  3. Good one! And speaking of Pi, have you seen the Life of Pi?

    Off to take a look at Daz's link.

    1. Still got to see the Life of Pi, keep seeing trailers and the like and say we must go, but haven't.
