It's been a while since I've posted actively, but here is a new puzzle for the community. Good luck and I hope you enjoy it!

I'm not getting a round answer, but...

2, 5, 1, 8, 3, 4, 1, 3, 3, 6, 1, 5, 2, 6, 1, 3, 1, 10, 1, 9, 1, 8, 3, 6, 1, 5, 1, 10, 2, 6, 1, 8

seems to be an array of vectors to traverse. The first digit is either 1, 2, or 3 corresponding to x, y, z, and the second digit is the amount. Assuming $\phi$ is at (5, 3, 20), then we can get the coordinate of $\pi$ by traversing these small vectors to get (5 + 8 + 3 + 5 + 3 + 10 + 9 + 8 + 5 + 10 + 8, 3 + 5 + 6 + 6, 20 + 4 + 6 + 6) = (74, 20, 36) If we interpret the "position of pi" to mean the distance from the origin, we can use the Pythagorean's theorem to get $$ \sqrt{74^2 + 20^2 + 36^2} \approx 84.6877 $$

Known Facts

The morse code says:

Show them the image...

The image:

(In Mandarin)
[5, 3, 20]
Phi is in the bottom-left, pi is in the upper right.

Beneath the image, the numbers are yet unsolved. Observation: there are 16 of them, and (thanks to @Darksky) the initial numbers are all either 1, 2, or 3.

Beneath the numbers, the message asks:

(ROT13) "Explain the position of pi."

Preceding, the definition of Traverse, also unsolved.

The Pythagorean Theorem, as is well known, is
a^2+b^2=c^2

Very very partial answer:

First line translates to

Show them the image

The line after the image translates to

Explain the position of pi

Partial, maybe help someone else:

Using @SirDerpy 's answer getting the numbers in Mandarin [5,3,20] and applying it to the rectangle's width, height, and length; and using the Pythagorean Theorem, the length of the lower left corner with Phi to the upper right corner with Pi is Sqrt(436). Also, looking at the sequence pair of numbers, there are pairs that are in Pi (3.1415926...)

Just starting, but the first line is

morse code

and translates to

Show them the image...
