The most beautiful equation

People debate what is the most beautiful equation. I believe it is this one:

e^{i \pi} + 1 = 0\,\!

"Like a Shakespearean sonnet that captures the very essence of love, or a painting that brings out the beauty of the human form that is far more than just skin deep, Euler's Equation reaches down into the very depths of existence."  _Dr. Keith Devlin

A transcendental number to the power of a (transcendental number * the imaginary number i), being equal to a constant that when you add one you get zero.

These are special numbers that took form at the instant the universe was created. This equation whelps at its loudest, that we know nothing.

Those who can appreciate its beauty, stand back and say, there is something there.
