Whilst doing a friend’s math homework for money (I’m that asian and jewish) I discovered a mathematical sequence known as the Fibonacci spiral, based off of the fibonacci sequence. Now I hate math as much as the next guy, but I found some pretty trippy things. This sequence is found in many parts of the natural world, all the way from the shape of ancient shell fossils to the lines on your fingerprints.
Here are some examples explained with pictures: http://www.inspirationgreen.com/fibonacci-sequence-in-nature.html
Some of the most striking examples were how the shape of Africa fits the spiral sequence spot on, and the most densely populated areas correspond with the most densely clustered segments of the spiral. Also, the way galaxies and hurricanes form seem to fit the sequence perfectly as well.
This is the kind of shit I wouldn’t mind learning in school, because I find it actually applicable and interesting…
