I'm compelled to find meaning in this or some secret to the nature of life... or some such pseudo intellectual crap.

I remember Stephen Hawking commenting on the Theory of everything by questioning: "Is the unified theory so compelling that it brings about its own existence?" Atleast on a 2D plane, this equation does.

Nice, but not very deep. Seems a bit like the initially surprising statement that pi (if it proves to be a normal number) contains the total sum of all human knowledge encoded in it digits, including complete video footage of every single humans life, whether dead, living or yet to be born, and interesting stuff like the list of lotto numbers in all times and a very detailed and accurate account of what happened to all your socks that went missing over the years. Its all there, tucked in between some fragments of noise.

To be fair, pi has not yet been proved normal.
