One might observe that the following calculation

64Pi^3 - 48Pi + 8/Pi = 4Pi(4Pi-1/Pi)(4Pi-2/Pi)

is remarkably close to the ratio of the mass
of the proton to the mass of the electron.
(Check it out for yourself. Numbers don't lie.)
Does anyone know if there is any source (other
than my own figuring in 1990) for this approximation?
Has anyone ever seen this anywhere else?
