ANOTHER date coincidence in the digits of pi!

Okay, I’ve actually already mentioned this particular date coincidence in the digits of pi, briefly, in my earlier post entitled “Interesting date coincidence in the digits of pi”, but I sort of downplayed it at the time because I felt it wasn’t as mind-boggling as the primary date coincidence I was writing about in that post. Now I’m not so sure. YOU be the judge (please!)!

The numerical expression of February 25 commonly used in the United States

I made the point in my earlier post that the date 11/27 in a common year is the 331st day of the year, and the very first appearance of the three-digit string 331 in the digits of pi is in position 1127, a representation of the date! However, I also mentioned that the second appearance of 56 in the digits of pi is in position 225, and 2/25 is the 56th day of the year. This was cool to me since I have two close family members whose birthdays are 2/25, but since it is the second appearance of 56 in the digits of pi in position 225, rather than the first, as in the case of the string 331 in position 1127, it didn’t seem quite as “cosmic” to me.

However, I am now considering changing my mind on this one due to a little bit of research my coincidence-collecting friend Carolyn did concerning coincidences between appearances of the two-digit string 56, and positions of it in the digits of pi that seem to indicate the date February 25th, over and over. I checked myself after she put me hip to it, and what I found was indeed very cool.

A European/Canadian numerical expression for the 25th of February

Turns out that although it is the second appearance of 56 that is found in position 225, a representation of the 56th day of the year (in both a leap and a common year), the very next appearance of 56 in the digits of pi is in position 252, yet another representation of the date February 25th, this time Canadian and European style (25/2). If this wasn’t enough, the next appearance of 56 in the digits of pi is in position 256, which seems to indicate to me the 2nd 56 in pi, which I have already found is in position 225, a representation of the 56th day of the year!

So, anyone out there reading this blog have the birthday of 2/25? If so, there’s some pretty interesting coincidental stuff going on in the digits of pi concerning the representations of it and the number of days into the year on which it falls!!

Snapshot of Carolyn's Website

By the way, Carolyn, the other coincidence collector who put me hip to this particular coincidence in the digits of pi happens to be none other than Carolyn M. Vines, the website hostess of “Gaea’s Guide to Health and Wellness” at incareofcarolyn.com     Yes, not only is she an experienced health and wellness “guru”, she is also an accomplished “coincidence collector”, especially concerning coincidences found in the digits of pi.
