"Pi: Pattern of the Universe" a drawing I did back in 2003

In honorarium of Pi day (3.14),

below are some of Max's theorems from one of my favourite films of all time: Aronofsky's Pi

1. Mathematics is the language of nature. 2. Everything around us can be represented and understood through numbers. 3. If you graph these numbers, patterns emerge. Therefore: There are patterns everywhere in nature.

Restate my assumptions: One, Mathematics is the language of nature. Two, Everything around us can be represented and understood through numbers. Three: If you graph the numbers of any system, patterns emerge. Therefore, there are patterns everywhere in nature. Evidence: The cycling of disease epidemics;the wax and wane of caribou populations; sun spot cycles; the rise and fall of the Nile. So, what about the stock market? The universe of numbers that represents the global economy. Millions of hands at work, billions of minds. A vast network, screaming with life. An organism. A natural organism. My hypothesis: Within the stock market, there is a pattern as well... Right in front of me... hiding behind the numbers. Always has been.

When I was a little kid, my mother told me not to stare into the sun, so when I was six I did...

~~~~~ How ironic (or is it really.) that one of my dear friends, the brilliant (I will call him as he would like to be known as-X), is like a hologram straight out of Pi. Except X is Taiwanese, dresses like a punk rocker badass complete with his trademark long hair and bandana, takes amazing photography of dark shadowy things he sees on his late night strolls thru LA and has (in his guestimation) about 34,567 things he doesn't need in his apartment. These facts aside, X devised an algorithm computer software for predicting patterns in the stock market years ago and is now able to survive off of his accurate calculations giving him freedom from job slavery, as he slowly but steadily ascends along the path of making "Fuck You Money". These may not have been Max's objectives, but X has decoded the labyrinthian machine that is the stock market and beat it's misanthropic ass into a pulp. And like Max, X would never sell out and give his formula to the bastards over at Goldman-Sachs for a big payola. Genius has Principle, people. Principle.

A toast to Pi day. A toast to X. A toast to Ozzy, Daz, Rory, Gian, Dan, Reef, Viz, Fyodor, ARH, Bahar, Bilal, John & Angelo and a toast to mathematical minds everywhere.
