Phi, not theta
*sigh* The writers did not do their homework. The golden ration is called Phi, not Theta.

Approximation of Pi
An even closer estimate of Pi is 355/133.

Don't be wowed by the wrong things.
I bet there *is* hidden wisdom in the Torah. But let's keep our findings to real wisdom, and not to purported hidden codes. These codes fail to impress people who have seen the following "wisdom" hidden in Hamlet. Jumble the letters of: "To be or not to be: that is the question, whether tis nobler in the mind to suffer the slings and arrows of outrageous fortune." -- and you get:"In one of the Bard's best-thought-of tragedies, our insistent hero, Hamlet, queries on two fronts about how life turns rotten."

Creation on the basis of Pi
It came to me in a dream a couple of years ago -Creation of the world was based upon PiPi = 22/7, right?22 letters of the Hebrew Alphabet during 7 days... Shmuel

creation of world based on PI
Not sure where your source is that the creation of the world is connected to PI - but creation actually took 6 days.

"Rest" was a creation, too.
7 days is correct. On the seventh day Hashem created the concept of "rest".On the other hand, Pi is not really equal to 22/7. That is just a rough estimate. It is an irrational number i.e., it cannot be exactly expressed by a ratio of 2 rational numbers. A better estimate would be 333/106.
