[Pi] & Ptolemaeus

Pi – Archimedes

One of my all-time favourite movie scenes, and equally one of my all-time favourite movies – “Pi” by Darren Aronofsky. It also has the actor Mark Margolis playing a major role, who happens to be one of my all-time favourite actors. Watching this scene I remembered a dream I had a few nights ago. In the dream I was holding a box in my hands, and in the box there were 20 small glass-made objects, all of similar size and shape. These pieces were colour-coded, and they supposedly were ‘the Key to Everything’. This box was called “Mathematical glass of Ptolemaios”. I haven’t been exposed to mr. Ptolemaeus during my waking hours, neither have I studied his theories or philosophy. I was kind of bewildered once I was awake. Glass I connect with transparency and therefore ‘one-ness’, and mathematics – well, structure behind all of it..? Ptolemaeus believed in earth-centered universe, this would probably relate to ego in the dream. Hum..
