In his book, Contact (1985), Carl Sagan suggested that a message found deep inside transcendental numbers such as pi would prove that intelligence antedates the universe.

Now, 15 billion years after the creation of the universe, we have calculated pi with sufficient accuracy to test that hypothesis. This video examines the first 200 billion digits of pi in base 10.

The results will astound you.
