Numbers are not found in nature. Humans have created numbers in order to abstractly represent what we find. In nature, all things are individuals and together equal one whole individual the Universe. Similarly in math, 1 is the only number and all other numbers are multiples of this 1. So our number system is perfectly designed to represent the seemingly endless individuals that we find in nature. Things built of things, built of things.
The Universe is the only thing that is truly one of a kind. It is the only true individual. Like us it is composed of a number of smaller pieces but on an infinitely larger scale. The largest individuals we know that the Universe is composed of are super clusters, which are composed of galaxies, which in turn are composed of solar systems, planets, molecules, atoms and so on all the way down to its most basic pieces. It would seem logical that the shape, motion and interaction of the base units “the smallest particles of the Universe” would be directly responsible for the shape, motion and interaction of all larger cooperative structures which are composed of those smallest units. Perhaps the smallest individuals of our Universe are responsible for creating the Golden Ratio that we find so prevalent in all that we see.
Sacred Geometry of the Nautilus Shell.
The Chambered Nautilus is a living fossil that has survived in Earth’s oceans for the last 500 million years. Existing before there were fish, dinosaurs, or mammals, the Nautilus could grow up to six meters long and was a predator in the ancient seas.
The main feature of the Nautilus is the large snail-like shell that is coiled upwards and lined with mother-of-pearl. The shell is subdivided into as many as 30 chambers. As the shell grows, its body moves forward into the new larger chamber and produces a wall to seal off the older chambers. The empty chambers are used to regulate buoyancy. A cross-section of the shell of the Nautilus will show the cycles of its growth as a series of chambers arranged in a precise Golden Mean Spiral.
The Golden Mean is represented by the Greek letter Phi (with the decimal representation of 1.6180…), and is one of those mysterious Natural numbers that seems to arise out of the basic structure of our Cosmos. Phi appears regularly in the Realm of things that grow and unfold in steps just as the Nautilus shell grows larger on each Spiral by Phi.
With each revolution completing a cycle of Evolution, the Golden Mean Spiral is Symbolic of Lifes unfolding Mysteries. The continuous curves of the Spirals, which are Feminine in Nature, and the Ratios between each of the chambers reveal the intimate relationship between the Harmonics of Nature and Sacred Geometry.
When you add up any length of the Fibonacci sequence the sum is always 1 less than another Fibonacci number. Example: 1+1+2=4 (1 less than 5) 1+1+2+3=7 (1 less than 8) This is true no matter how far you count up the Fibonacci sequence. The sum of all the numbers together will always be 1 less than another Fibonacci number. So why not add a 1? Perhaps Fibonacci was off by 1. This again seems logical because 1+1=2+1=3. That’s three 1’s in beginning. When we add a third 1 to the beginning of the Fibonacci sequence an amazing thing happens. With the extra 1 the whole sequence becomes another Fibonacci number. Example: 1+1+1+2+3=8 (another Fibonacci number) Even more amazing is what happens when you continue this chain or mirror it back down to the last 1. 1+1+1+2+3+2+1+1+1=13 (another Fibonacci number) In this way you can see the symmetrical anatomy of the Fibonacci number 13. This works for every Fibonacci number. Like the Universe, every Fibonacci number is composed of smaller pieces. Take the number 21 for example. If you were to break 21 into its two smaller Fibonacci numbers you would get 13 and 8. Then break those down into there smaller Fibonacci numbers. Eventually you will end up with a bunch of 1’s. When looking at a bunch of 1’s there is no discernable code or pattern, but if you group some of those 1’s into 2’s you can start to see the code of nature.
This diagram is a hypothesis on the shape, motion and interaction of the base units of the Universe. This theory offers convincing evidence that the smallest particles or “building blocks” of the Universe are circular in shape and all the same size. There is a circular gear type process which results in symmetrical cooperative structures that create Fibonacci numbers, and subsequently exhibit the Golden Ratio. In this theory 1+1 only equals 2 when motion is not part of the equation. Motion is what enables interaction to occur between individuals. Without motion everything would remain as it originally was, stagnant and without growth or evolution.
