After Dan Brown's Da Vinci Code  many people for the first time began to really understand the connection between symbolism, nature and mathematics.

One of the 'neat' and well known concepts that came out well in the book and movie was the Fibonnacci Sequence which is 1,1,2,3,5,8,13,21,34,55 etc.  The numbers of this sequence converge to the Golden Ratio  1.618.... when you take (n+1)/n for ever larger n.

The little video we present here connects the Fibonnacci Sequence to the following:

  • Golden Ration

  • Log Spiral

  • Nautilus Shell

  • Sunflower seed propagation from the core

  • Hexagon

  • Dragon Fly's Eye

The most powerful ingredient of the Internet is video.  This is and excellent one that can teach and entertain in 3:44
