Eternity

March 02, 1986

It was very interesting to learn, through The Times (Feb. 16) that NASA's Ames Research Center's supercomputer has calculated pi to the 29,360,000 decimal place. This sounds like an attempt to explain eternity, for which there is an old aphorism:

Every hundred years a sparrow rubs its beak on a mountain. When the mountain is worn down, that is a moment of eternity!
