In the Fibonacci sequence, each number is the sum of the two preceding numbers, starting with 0 and 1:  0, 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34, 55, 89, 144, 233, 377, 610,   (In mathematical terms, we can write this as Fn = Fn-1 + Fn-2, with F0 = 0 and F1 = 1.)

“According to the Buddha’s teachings, the most basic condition for happiness is freedom. Here we do not mean political freedom, but freedom from the mental formations of anger, despair, jealousy, and delusion.” ~ Thich Nhat Hanh <3 lis

What’s so sacred about geometry, anyway?


The number of spirals on the head of Romanesco broccoli is a Fibonacci sequence. Description from I searched for this on

Fibonacci Numbers and the Golden Ratio

An example of a Fibonacci sequence making spiral patterns in nature. This is also a fractal because each floret is an identical but smaller version of the whole thing & this makes the spirals easy to see.

Fibonacci spiral in nature

Fibonacci spirals in nature reflect the curling of space-time toward singularity on all scales.

Spirals occur everywhere in nature. Whenever I come across a snail it reminds me to go within to my center<--very cool

Are Spirals a Sign of a Sacred Design? The Golden Spiral plays a harmonizing role in the Universe. It represents two well known shapes in sacred geometry: the golden mean or golden ratio (phi) spiral and the Fibonacci spiral.
