The Fibonacci Sequence in Nature

The Fibonacci Sequence in Nature

There is magic in the natural universe, and it is called the Fibonacci Sequence. The Fibonacci Sequence in nature is everywhere, if you only open your eyes and look for it.  In fact, the Fibonacci Sequence is seen in the growth of every living thing in nature.

The Fibonacci Sequence

The order of the Fibonacci Sequence goes like this: 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34, 55, 89, 144. Similarly, each next number is found by adding the two numbers before it.  It continues on to infinity.  The golden ratio is the ratio between the numbers (1.6). The iteration continues infinitely, both ways. For example, the golden spiral is formed by plotting a quarter circle inside each of the squares. The Fibonacci Sequence represents infinity and infinity represents what is eternal.

Examples of the Fibonacci Sequence in Nature

We have compiled a slideshow showcasing the many, many occurrences of the Fibonacci Sequence in nature. We hope it inspires you to notice it more in your own life.  Additionally, we hope it helps you become more aware of how everything is connected, infinite and eternal.
