Dear Gopi, The only propositions I know of linked to Pythagorus, are the ten axioms and propositions of mathematics that he taught, based on Euclid's geometry: These are: A1. "Things which are equal to the same thing are also equal to one another. A2. "If equals be added to equals, the wholes are equal." A3. "If equals be subtracted from equals, the remainders are equal." A4. "Things which coincide with one another are equal to one another." A5. "The whole is greater than the part." P1. (It is possible) "to draw a straight line from any point to any other point." P2. (It is possible) "to produce a finite straight line continuously in a straight line." P3. (It is possible) "to describe a circle with any centre and distance." P4. (It is true) "that all right angles are equal to one another." P5. (It is true) "that, if a straight line falling on two straight lines make the interior angles on the same side less than two right angles, the two straight lines, if produced indefinitely, meet on that side on which are the angles less than the two right angles." For more on Pythagorean mathematics, see: http://www.mathgym.com.au/history/pythagoras/pythgeom.htm#15 "It is well known that the Pythagoreans were much occupied with the construction of regular polygons and solids, which in their cosmology played an essential part as the fundamental forms of the elements of the universe." As for the relationship between Pi and Phi... They are part of the Golden numbers, polygons, etc., known to all the ancient theosophists and occultists leading from Pythagorus, Plato, Hermes, Porphyry, Plotinus, etc. For background on this see: http://goldennumber.net/pi-phi-fibonacci.htm Also, look up "golden ratio" in www.google.com, and also try "sacred geometry." "e ≈ 2.7182818284.... is a transcendental number commonly encountered when working with exponential models (growth, decay, and logistic models, and continuously compounded interest, for example) and exponential functions. eis also the base of the natural logarithm." "i" is The symbol used to represent the imaginary number (The square root of minus I) As far as I know, their is no single relationship that brings all these numbers or symbols together, other than perhaps the relationships of the golden numbers to the sacred geometry's or to the Fibonacci series. However, all of these real numbers are related to the ABC theory -- which is based on the funda-mental geometry and mathematics that describes the universal forms and their interrelationships as they fractally *involve* spherically (like bubbles within bubbles, etc.), and ultimately *evolve* as holographically encoded vibratory patterns on their surfaces -- after emanating from the "spinergy" (abstract motion or angular momentum) of the Absolute zero-or laya-point ("singularity") of primal space. This is also fully consistent with the metaphysics of Cosmogenesis descibed by HPB in the Secret Doctrine based onthe formulas given in the Book of Dzyan.
