I don't know whether you meant to do this on purpose, but your post makes it sound like (-1)^(-i) - pi = 19.999999... (that is, repeating nines), when in fact it's something like 19.999129...etc. It's not much of a coincidence. "e^(pi * i) + 1 = 0" is actually better at demonstrating deep mathematical unity, since it involves all five of what for lack of a better term you might say are the deep constants of mathematics: 0, 1, pi, e, and i.
If I really meant repeating 9's, surely I'd just write "20", wouldn't I?I did intend, however, to make people wonder if there were any more 9's in the expansion.
Sorry, on rereading, that reply sounds kind of snotty. I didn't intend it that way but I apologise, because it sure reads that way.
