Max drills the mark on his head (could be symbolism.) The mark that Max drills out is his ability to understand Pi, which, based on other examples we have seen, would lead him to his death. He chooses to live and not understand Pi. After that the little girl asks him some math questions. He just smiles and says "I do not know."

Continuity mistake: Before Max's computer blows up, it predicts that a specific share will fall over 30 points. The next day, Max is on a subway train and borrows a newspaper from another passenger so he can check the stock prices. The price of the share indeed has fallen, but the text next to it indicated it has risen two and a half points, rather than fallen by over thirty.

Sol Robeson: The Ancient Japanese considered the Go board to be a microcosm of the universe. Although when it is empty it appears to be simple and ordered, in fact, the possibilities of gameplay are endless. They say that no two Go games have ever been alike. Just like snowflakes. So, the Go board actually represents an extremely complex and chaotic universe.
