Nature by Numbers

This computer animation short is stunning!  I intend to meet its creator, Cristobal, to acknowledge in person the remarkable skills that came together for this video to occur. It is a beautiful demonstration of 'Golden Mean' geometry (Nautilus Shell type spirals) also known as the Golden Section, the Fibonacci Sequence and Phi-ometry.  

 

The Golden Mean ratio is approximately 1.618:1 and is present in all of Life from leaf forms to sound vibrations to the proportions of Plants, Animals and Humans with no exceptions. This Naturally occurring ratio has been used extensively to resolve beautiful proportions in Architecture. 

The Golden Mean is a Natural Law describing the uniform unfoldment of growth from within.  To a botanist, this pattern is known as 'Phyllotaxis' meaning 'leaf arrangement'.
