Pinecone - Golden ratio, as seen throughout God's creation.

Count the spirals in a pine cone and you'll get a Fibonacci number. See how you can see spirals in the other direction? You get a different, adjacent, Fibonacci number. Nature is the coolest!

Fibonacci numbers and Phi are related to spiral growth in nature. If you sum the squares of any series of Fibonacci numbers, they will equal the last Fibonacci number used in the series times the next Fibonacci number.  This property results in the Fibonacci spiral, based on the following progression and properties of the Fibonacci …

Golden Ratio - The Golden Number - Phi - . Whatever you want to call it, this is a fascinating math & science concept. Gary Meisner shares Golden Ratio Myth, Fact and Misunderstanding.

Sunflower head spirals are MATH -- amazing creations: In 1202 AD Fibonacci discovered a fascinating number sequence often seen in nature (0,1,1,2,3,5,8,13,21,34, and so on) where the sum of any two numbers in the sequence equals the next number. Acorns and Sunflowers are 2 examples of complicated math in nature!

Golden Mean or Fibonacci series. The number of clockwise and counterclockwise spirals in a sunflower are always two consecutive Fibonacci numbers.

I'm not a fan of octopus or squid but I can't deny the beauty in the pattern and what I can only assume to think is an interesting texture. The repetitive geometric design is so cool nature!
