Re: π

I would say the siddhis are special people only.


In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.

I agree with you regarding the satisfaction and importance of actually computing some numbers. I can't tell you how often I see time and money wasted because someone didn't bother to run the numbers.

Re: π

No one is special because everyone obeys the laws of mathematics/physics/nature

Re: π

Depends on what you mean by special. In that sense no but compared to the others, I would say yes. They have achieved special permissions.
