Fibonacci, Sea-life & Me
Did you know there is a hidden mathematical code found in sea-life that's also found in humans? This code follows a mathematical pattern known as the Fibonacci Sequence. Leonardo Fibonacci was an Italian mathematician known in the Middle Ages to be the greatest mathematician in Europe. Contrary to the claim of many sources, Fibonacci did not discover or invent this sequence, but was responsible for making it known through his books and teachings earning the name given to this mathematical code.
The sequence is the sum of two numbers that precede it. For example, 0 + 1 is 1. Then you take 1 (last number in equation) and add the sum to it. For example, 1 + 1 is 2. Therefore, the sequence goes: 0, 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34, and so on. All trees, ocean spirals, sea creatures, life’s DNA, lungs, and body measurements follow this sequence in their patterns of growth.
