Script of dialogue, and a creative twist - the particular letters a certain statement holds entirely follow tau's decimal digits (6.283185307179...), following in count an accurate number echoing digits within words.

This is true for the entire script (not counting, of course, stage directions and bolded names). To see this, examine the first words of the play. "Eureka!" has 6 letters, "an" has 2 letters, "argument" has 8 letters, and so on, following the digits of the true circle constant tau, for a total of 769 digits. The plot follows a girl named Vi who "discovers" tau, and tries to convince a skeptical Mike of its merits.

More can be found in the notes section at the end of the play. What do you all think?

Read Zarmina!

In the beginning there was walrii. In the end there will be walrii. All hail our supreme leader :walrii: --Snektron



if you wanna throw money at me and/or CodeWalrus monthly it's here

Neato. Reminds me of the same thing, but with pi. I suppose you were strongly influenced by that. :P


JWinslow23

The play had an error on one word: "conceptually" on page 3. "Conceptually" is a 12-letter word, but it is supposed to be a 10-letter word as the constraint dictates. This has been altered to "completely".

Re-print accordingly.

oh my god :ninja:
I so much hope those Tau supporters will one daya just accept Pi...

(Even tho I like ur work, it's really nice) xD

How did you manage to come up with this entire text? O.O

I started using tau in my code. It's so much more readable now!
This is a signature.
And now......give me an internet!

To be or not to be.........is that even a question? Who gets to decide this anyways?

Indeed :P
I added Tau to my RPN-Calc, but just for fun. Pi is also there and has precedence in the menu over Tau.
I am also not so happy about all this Tau stuff.

Rest assured, you both, he means it. ;)

Also, that's nice, DarkestEx. Kinda like Desmos adding the circle constant tau as the "capital theta".

One question, though: How are you not happy about it? :P

I am absolutely fine with the idea of Tau, however I think some people (not you) are taking this too far.
Like e.g. adding it to Python or fighting on YouTube about it.

Well, I dunno, I'm all for adding it to Python or Java, or similar. It's already in Processing.js. :P
