I love spirals!! They are so beautiful and comforting to me.  Math is not!! However, did you know that even nature is math?

I was both disenchanted and thrilled to learn that some of the things we hold most beautiful even on a simple, instinctual level are MATHMATICAL! Yes, even my most beloved spiral.

Wiki says, “A Fibonacci spiral approximates the golden spiral; unlike the “whirling rectangle diagram” based on the golden ratio, above, this one uses quarter-circle arcs inscribed in squares of integer Fibonacci-number side, shown for square sizes 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, and 34.”
