        @edwardloveall @siracusa And what if the index of a file’s starting position in pi takes more bytes to express than the file itself? Easy, just find the index in pi and store the index of the index. Recurse until every file is compressed to a single digit.

          @dwineman @edwardloveall @siracusa You would need to store at least two numbers to be able to decode the data, the number and how many times you recursed, which may end up being a massive number

            @zei Doesn’t matter! Just pi-compress it! @siracusa @edwardloveall

              @edwardloveall @siracusa When you think of it, every file is a number. Even a 2Gb video file is just a big number. It’s funny how a big number can infringe on copyrights or patents.
