Under “Discrete” I refer to the acceptance in Engineering [ and not only ] of π in the Form of :

4 /{SQRT[ Golden Ratio ]},
which is associated, indissolubly, with Microcosmos and Macrocosmos .

The proposed π keeps its “Irrational” form in powers and roots unchanged.

As it is difficult to anticipate truth of the many π values, obtained “Diachronically” by searching various theoretical methods [ without a controlling feedback to each method used- e.g for the cube root of 2 ( Unsolved Theorem by Ruler and Compass), theoretically we obtain 1.25992105 and, as a feedback check, find that the cube of this is 2], it is proposed, here, that one experimental method could be reassuring, as is the testing of a designed equipment for its efficiency [ say that of a high speed rotating engine mechanism], using the proposed value of π, against the standard one in use.
