The 1.000 first digits -base 10- of 'e' displayed on an helix -good point of view- [Les 1.000 premières décimales -base 10- de 'e' visualisées sur une hélice -bon point de vue-].

To each digit D inside [0,9] is associated an angle A(D) with the following rule:
                    A(D) = D.(2.pi/10)
Then each digit D(n) (n E [1,1000] for this picture) is displayed as a point (belonging to an helix) with the following tridimensional coordinates:
                    X = cos(A(D(n)))
                    Y = sin(A(D(n)))
                    Z = n
At last, the picture displays all the segments {D(n),D(n+1)} (for all n).

The left-hand side picture seems to exhibit extraordinary symmetries, when the right-hand side one shows that there are none. Obviously, those apparent symmetries are due to the fact that 'e' should be normal number (not yet demonstrated) meaning that, for example, the frequencies of 00, 01, 02,..., 97, 98, 99 are equal (and equal to 1/100). Thus, whatever the digits p and q, one can find n such as D(n)=p and D(n+1)=q. Then all segments p ==> q must exist if a sufficient number of digits of 'pi' is computed (1000 for this picture)...
