Darren Aronofsky’s Pi (π), the 1998 mathematical thriller, if there is such a genre, is one of my favorite movies. While I haven’t cared as much for most of Aronofsky’s other offerings, Pi, perhaps due to its gritty black and white capture or just the pure creativity of the concept, still captures my imagination every time I watch it.
Recently, I came across a couple of YouTube videos produced by a DJ and animator that made me think of the spirals, as mentioned in . I also made me think of Allah’s verse:
إِذَا الشَّمْسُ كُوِّرَتْ
“By the Sun when it is wound up!” [Qur’an, 81: 1]
