Nothing Hidden

     The Fibonacci sequence is a series of numbers in which each number in the series is a sum of the two preceding numbers. For example: 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34, 55, 89, 144, 233 and so on. This sequence appears with astounding frequency in nature, and is the underlying pattern for everything from pinecones and ferns to the branching of tree limbs and the cresting of waves. It's hard to dispute the precision of numbers. To me, it seems impossible that such beautiful accuracy could have sprung at random from chaos. It's so much like synchronicity, pointing towards that commonality and connection between all things, all part of the hidden mechanics of a mysterious universe.  Here's a wonderful video illustrating these principles. Enjoy!
