>Since all possible finite bit strings are, by definition, contained >in the unending cavalcade of bits in pi, Definition? I have seen not this asserted even by theorem. Not surprising, since the statement is patently false. There are 2^{\aleph_0} finite bit strings, and only \aleph_0 of those are subsequences of pi. For those of you without a math background, this means "They all just don't fit." Eric
