This sequence known as the Fibonacci series is considered as the nature’s numbering system. They appear everywhere in Nature, from the leaf arrangement in plants to the pattern in flower florets to the spiral galaxies. No doubt, it’s a sequence that governs the geometry of the universe !
FIBONACCI SERIES, WHAT IS IT ?
0, 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34, 55, 89, 144, 233, 377, 610, 987, 1597, …
This sequence, named after the mathematician Leonardo of Pisa (nicknamed Fibonacci), is constructed by the seeds of the sequence (initial two numbers) then assigning the rest by the rule that each number be the sum of the preceding two.
Some interesting facts and illustrations:
- Take any three adjacent numbers in the sequence, square the middle number, multiply the first and third numbers. The difference between these two results is always 1.
- Take any four adjacent numbers in the sequence. Multiply the outside ones. Multiply the inside ones. The first product will be either one more or one less than the second.
- The sum of any ten adjacent numbers equals 11 times the seventh one of the ten.

Now, some Fibonacci spiral fakery. Meanwhile, I found this pic which has been projected as a Fibonacci spiral. Guys, this one is totally fake!!.. Check out the difference yourself..
