From the Movie 'PI'
1. Mathematics is the language of nature.
2. Everything around us can be represented and understood through
3. If you graph the numbers of any system patterns emerge. Therefore
there are patterns everywhere in nature. The cycling of disease
epidemics, the wax & wane of caribou populations, sunspot cycles, the
rise and fall of the Nile.
4. What about the Stock Market, the universe of numbers that
represents the global economy, millions of human 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 behind the numbers, right in front of me, hiding behind the
numbers, always has been.
"My new Hypothesis: If we're built from Spirals while living in a
giant Spiral, then is it possible that everything we put our hands to
is infused with the Spiral?"
"The Ancient Japanese considered the Go board to be a microcosm of
the universe. Although when it is empty it appears to be simple and
ordered, in fact, the possibilities of game play are endless. They
say that no two Go games have ever been alike. Just like snowflakes.
So, the Go board actually represents an extremely complex Universe.
"But as the Go game progresses, the possibilities get smaller, the
moves "are" predictable. So maybe there is a Pattern, underneath
every Go game, like in the Stock Market, maybe we are just not
sophisticated enough to see it..."

"Though we be apart,
we are but a heartbeat away.
I have come to share a Truth
upon this blessed day."
"Today you are hungry...
...along comes a man that gives you food to eat, but tomorrow your
hunger arises yet again, demanding to be fed.
Along comes another man who feeds your Eternal-Self, thus freeing
from the hunger of illusion. Which of these two men brings forth the
greater gift to all mankind?
As we give forth our gifts to our brother and sister souls, we must
do so without any expectation; rather that we take a lesson in
from the trees, bearing fruit for all to eat...from the time they
born until the day that they die, their only desire is to give forth
the sweetness of Life to all who pass their way.
When we attach any sort of expectation to even our kindest thought,
it ceases to be a gift and becomes instead, a debt to pay...
no longer a blessing but rather a burden to bear. Is this not the
reason so many human relationships fail? If our own expectations are
attached to our emotions then the gift of love becomes only the tie
that bind... 'I love you.' then exists as a contract to honor or to
break 'Because I love you, I expect you to act accordingly. I expect
this for that.' When our loved ones fail to live up to our own
expectations, the relationship tends to suffer. Expectation is the
food which gives rise to yet a more demanding hunger.
Unconditional Love is the sweetness of Life that feeds your Eternal-Self."
