You got me there. However, if it doesn't work

with pi we can assert that some other infinitely

nonrepeating decimal (in fact, an infinite class

of them) exists. The question then becomes, does

one exist that can be generated as simply as pi?

Or does it matter of the algorithm is simple at

all?
