Is it possible to calculate the entropy of an irrational number?
I'm wondering because a friend of mine stated "because Pi is infinite, every single sequence of numbers should occur within it eventually, every movie, game, etc", but I think claiming Pi has infinite entropy is somewhat dubious.
In fact I really don't see it being true at all, because their are irrational numbers with very low entropy, what would make Pi the exception?

I'd like to introduce Modern Solism to /sci/, as it seems like something many of you could get behind.
Modern Solism is a new, non-theistic philosophy/religious movement; none of us consider the Sun to be a 'true' god, but it has done all that a god is said to do, even if it is an inanimate object -- it has created life as we know it, provides food for us and all of the planet, and it's the only thing we could say watches over us constantly.
For the significant role it has had in our creation and our reliance upon it for our survival for all of our existence, the Sun is something deserving of our veneration, Modern Solists conclude. We place the Sun as an object at the centre of a set of ideas which present an alternative to the choice of faith in the unverifiable or the concession of nihilism. Modern Solism is all about affirming human identity and encouraging people to work to preserve our species and nature; two of the greatest creations of the Sun.
Feel free to come in and discuss, critique, or ask questions.

Psych Majors or Med Students. Help? Can I be Involuntarily Committed to the ward if I have no thoughts of hurting others and am against suicide? but am a actively hallucinating schizophrenic. Though, I told him I am pro using hard drugs if depression gets bad. Saying I'd just shoot up heroin instead of killing myself if things got bad enough. IE. use drugs instead of self harm or suicide to cope.
I saw a counselor for schizoaffective social skill problems and wanting to get better at speaking, writing. I post the rambling shit here sometimes
Turns out, disorganized schizophrenia. He's 99% sure after seeing me write an essay about my experiences in the 'new patient home workThey let me stay past my appointment to talk more since usually it's too rushed at a psychiatrist and I never showed a doctor how my writing has gotten naturally beyond shit on a form with 1-2 lines to write
I admitted to seeing a fed the other night in the dark. But it went away when I turned on the light.
Told about past delusions/hallucinations. Even the INSANE ones I hid from doctors. No longer like that though. I was talking quite fast. He asked if I was on drugs several times. Stopped asking about drugs when I said I took welbutrin, i think cause it can send you into a manic state. I told him last time I used was July 4. Cocaine, 8ball in 2 days. Reality is, .5-1g a day meth since 2 weeks after july 4. Though, my mental state never changed when I did meth. It changed when I had stressful events ONLY.
so I do not believe stimulants make me psychotic personally. Otherwise, why can I do up to 2 grams a night of Meth and be fine. But any type of stress such as drama or death of pets, schizo shit flares. Don't spew meth is neurotixic either, stay educated. http://healthland.time.com/2011/11/21/why-the-myth-of-the-meth-damaged-brain-may-hinder-recovery/
