PI IS AN INFINITE, NONRECURRING DECIMAL  MEANING
THAT EVERY POSSIBLE NUMBER COMBINATION EXISTS
SOMEWHERE IN Pl, CONVERTED INTO ASCII TEXT,
SOMEWHERE IN THAT INFINITE STRING OF DIGITS IS
THE NAME OF EVERY PERSON YOU WILL EVER LOVE, THE
DATE, TIME, AND MANNER OF YOUR DEATH,
AND THE ANSWERS TO ALL THE GREAT QUESTIONS
OF THE UNIVERSE.

More mindfuck below
Each pixel in your screen has the possibility of being red, blue, green or off. Your screen is made up of a finite number of pixels, however many they might be.
Therefore, there are a finite number of images that your screen can display.
However, the number of combinations is incomprehensibly large. Because of the good resolution of modernscreens, literally any image you can imagine is one of those combinations and theoretically, if you went through each possible combination ( pixel 1 red, pixel 2 off... etc.) you would eventually run through every imaginable image.
Pictures of you at the Grand canyon with your family, and with literally every combination of every person who has ever and ever will exist, and even people who don't.
Pictures that, when sequenced, are the frames to a video of Emma Watson beating the ever living shit out of a bear on live television. Pictures that show the future, pictures of people from past living in today's society, and each of these pictures from every possible angle and throug good cameras, bad cameras, cameras with rain on the lens, etc. I guess it seems lik a paradox since the possibilities seem as infinite as our imaginations, yet there are only a finite number of combinations your screen can provide.

My common sense wants to say that there is only one infinity and therefore if we want number 2 to infinity we couldn't have number 3 to infinity, thus, this fact seems to be wrong.

You don't understand math then. It isn't a question of "common sense." Infinity isn't a number. There is not "only one infinity." You can't do arithmetic with infinity. If you did, infinity plus infinity is sill infinity. You see how "common sense" starts to break down.
It's a concept in math that you need to think about for a long time before it begins to kinda make sense.

Turning decimals into letters:
01234
ZABCD
Think you get the idea, if anyone was wondering.
What you can find in PI:
Your social security number
Passwords
Name
Work
Everything is there somewhere.
Chances of finding what you are looking for in the first 100 million decimals.
15 decimals = 100%
6 = 99.999995%
7 = 99.995%
8 = 63%
9 = 9.5%
10 = 0.995%
11 = 0.09995%

So yeah. This is still wrong, like it was last time it was posted.

Its almost impossible to disprove probabilities that approach one as some factor approaches infinity, because of the murky nature of infinity. But insead I'll give you an example of what you might not be able to find any number you want in an infinite sequence of numbers. Imagine you had a number that followed the patern 1.2345678 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 20 (space for clarity).
The number follows a pattern, but it is non repeating, and does not contain the number 9. Even in this infinetly large decimal, I can't find the number 69.
TL;DR Infinetly large non repeating numbers don't have to contain every number.

I've been thinking about infinity lately and it's just weird. Cause existence is just as infinite as the universe.

The thing is though, that it also holds every wrong answer, all the ways you won't die, and it will still invariably tell you that it is the truth. Every possibility is in there, so in a way, you might say its a god.

I thought it wasn't infinite, and scientists were figuring out if it is infinite or not. Well, it's just a guess.

If it does you would need to know what the look for its like look for peach blind folded it really means nothing

That is actually not true. It has not been proven that pi contains every number although it certainly looks that way.
As a counter example:
1.01001100011100001111... is an infinite, nonrepeating decimal, but the numbers 29 never occurs.
