I arise well after 3 and there are 9 that make me.

My world has random form. For me, too, that's the norm.

I feel incomplete and I know that I am. Please look me up sometime. This isn't a scam.

I'll provide some ID with high hopes you'll agree.

the location of e in the number pi?

I used an internet search, I guess that's cheating. No way that I would have gotten it otherwise. This is the link that got me there:

  • $\begingroup$ You are SO SO CLOSE! Hurry up dude! Get the answer!!!!!!!!!!!!!! HURRY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Some will argue I should give you full credit now! $\endgroup$ – Inquisitive Jul 24 '16 at 15:19
  • $\begingroup$ I will give you full credit. The answer is 271828182 and appears at the 246,890,641st decimal digit of Pi. The following is amazing. Apparently, it may be possible for full-blown "e" to appear in Pi. How can it be?!?!? Cheers from the USA my friend. $\endgroup$ – Inquisitive Jul 24 '16 at 18:01

Are you perhaps..

A social security number (SSN)/the social security system in the United States?

I arise well after 3

According to Wikipedia, over 25 million numbers were issued in the first three months, which is still a fraction of the entire population. Hence it would take well over 3 (months) for the system as it is today to arise.

and there are 9 that make me.

A social security number has 9 digits.

My world has random form. For me, too, that's the norm.

Any one SSN looks like a random string of numbers.

I feel incomplete and I know that I am.

Not everyone in the United States has one due to religious objections, etc.

Please look me up sometime. This isn't a scam.

It is important to know your SSN. Also, as with pretty much any country-wide identification system, it has been used for and in scams.

I'll provide some ID with high hopes you'll agree. 246-89-0641

Google tells me that this is an example of an SSN.

  • $\begingroup$ Thanks for your answer. A good try, but not what I was looking for. This is my first puzzle, so I don't exactly know when to begin providing clarifying hints. $\endgroup$ – Inquisitive Jul 24 '16 at 15:09

    $\begingroup$ @Inquisitive It's fine, I didn't believe this was the best fit anyway :P In Puzzling, normally people provide hints if others ask, or after 2 to 3 days to account for timezones and work and stuff. $\endgroup$ – yuzuki Jul 24 '16 at 15:18
