Fibonacci Sequence

FibonacciCurve2_house...Fibonacci 0, 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34, 55, 89, 144, 233, 377, ... Fibonacci, Golden Ratio, Phi and Divine Proportion. Adjacent numbers quickly approach a constant ratio equal to the "golden ratio" ϕ (approximately 1.618). Worth noting: ϕxϕ = ϕ + 1 and 1/ϕ = ϕ - 1 Also note floral spiral pattern: 137.5° + 222.5° = 360° and 222.5/137.5 = ϕ ≅ 1.618

The "Golden Ratio". I wish that the face wasn't in the background. The series of swirls/squares would be great alone. DIY project?

Sacred Geometry, the golden ratio or mean and phi point ratio The same ratio Vitruvius saw in the human body – 1 to PHI (1.618) – exists in every part of nature, from swimming fish to swirling planets. This divine ratio, or divine proportion, has been called the building block of all life.
