pi (or 3.141593) is a transcendental number, which suggests, among other things, that no finite sequence of algebraic operations on integers (powers, roots, sums, etc.) can be equal to its value. Consequently, its decimal representation never ends or repeats. It divides in endless variation. This text (titled "3...") is composed solely of language borrowed in direct numerical sequence from "The Book of Genesis," Charles Darwin’s "On the Origin of Species" (Chapter 8 - Hybridism) and Albert Einstein’s "Special and General Theory of Relativity." Each poem is comprised of individual lines whose word count corresponds precisely with the relative decimal point of pi to its first one thousand places. When drawing from each source, the author has taken great care never to exceed 3 consecutive lines from any given text and, even then, only in cases where the process of natural selection demands. While the original language of each line is faithfully preserved, each selection has been re-punctuated for narrative purposes.
