I hate stuff like this.
Not because it isn't true (it is), or even that it couldn't possibly be education (which it might). I hate it because the opportunity is squandered by somebody trying to make something that's fairly routine seem incredibly special and miraculous. Already, social media is full of comments from people claiming that something so "miraculous" must somehow prove the existence of their particular god.
Random, Non-terminating, non-repeating decimals are actually quite common in nature. Pi is one. So is the square root of 2, and in fact the square root of any number that isn't itself a perfect square. I won't even get into cube roots or any other type of roots. The Golden Ratio is also a non-terminating, non-repeating sequence of decimals. As are an infinite number of other ratios that exist in nature.
Not only this, but the core assertion in this item is not only not proven, it probably isn't proveable. It's nothing more than the old adage about a million monkeys in front of a million typewriters eventually coming up with 'Hamlet.' It may be true. A long enough random sequence (or random pounding of monkeys on keyboards) may eventually produce just about anything. But there's nothing magical or special about that.
There was an opportunity here to use Pi as an example, to demonstrate the power of certain mathematical expressions that define our world. To explain that the universe as we know it could not exist if such things did not exist. But the world of social media doesn't allow that. Stating that something is special, and allowing people to draw their own mostly incorrect conclusions seems to be the way to get attention. That's what such memes are really all about, which is why George Takei posted this to his Facebook page and accellerated the meme. Somebody out there is really proud of themselves for getting so much attention for their little, partially-correct statement.
The unfortunate side effect is that a huge number of people who formerly knew nothing will instead walk away with incorrect knowledge about the non-existent uniqueness of Pi.
