 Any infinite form can expand too.  Add a few digits to the end of Pi.

"[Pi] represents the ratio of any circle <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Circle>'s circumference to its diameter in Euclidean geometry <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Euclidean_geometry>, which is the same as the ratio of a circle's area to the square of its radius." the number Pi is just a representation of said ratio, and any decimal representation of it is _not_ Pi itself but an approximation of it. 3.14 is not Pi but a number that is close to Pi, that's all.

Yeah. I meant by means of refining the approximation. It's a limit, and so you can continue to approach Pi indefinitely and still add to, or improve upon your approximation. I'm hard up for an example. Can someone provide a better one?
