No wayyyyyy. I think I've heard about that before as well. That one is in relation to humanity (I think), so is quite astonishing in different ways. Where as this one is a mathematical proof, not only focused on humanity. Both amazing in their own ways.

By that proof, though, more numbers would contain the number one than the number three. In general, there are just as many numbers that start with one than start with nine, but because of the way exponential functions work, the number one is the most common starting digit.
I'm becoming less defined as days go by, fading away, and well you might say, I'm losing focus, kinda drifting into the abstract in terms of how I see myself.

The thing he posted and the thing I'm talking about are two separate things.

As of the last post, I found that 72 of the digits on this thread out of a total of 332 digits present were "3", or approximately 21.69%
