# The Fibonacci Number. Why it is so popular in nature?

The mysterious Fibonacci number equal to 1,618, excites the minds of scientists for several millennia. Someone said this number will be the Builder of the universe, some call it the number of God, and someone, without further ADO, just applies it in practice and gets an incredible architectural, artistic and mathematical creation. Fibonacci number has been found even in the proportions of the famous “Vitruvian man” of Leonardo Da Vinci, who claimed that the famous number came from mathematics, directs the entire Universe.

## Who is Fibonacci?

Leonardo of Pisa is considered the first major mathematician in the history of medieval Europe. Despite this, his famous nickname, “Fibonacci” scientist was not because of his extraordinary mathematical abilities, but because of his luck, because “Bonacci” in Italian means “lucky”. Before becoming one of the most famous mathematicians of the early middle Ages, Leonardo of Pisa studied the exact Sciences at the most advanced teachers of his time, which was considered by the Arabs. Thanks to this activity, the Fibonacci, in Europe there is a decimal system and Arabic numerals that we still use today.

In one of his most famous works called “Liber abaci” by Leonardo of Pisa results in the unique pattern of numbers which when setting in a row form a line of numbers, each of which is the sum of two previous numbers.

`In other words, the Fibonacci sequence looks like this:0, 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34, 55, 89, 144, 233, 377, 610, 987 and so on.`

Each number in the Fibonacci series divided into the following, matters, tending to a unique indicator, which is 1,618. The first numbers of the Fibonacci sequence so do not give the exact value, but with the growth, the ratio is gradually evening out and becoming more accurate.

## Why is Fibonacci so often used in nature?

Because of its widespread use in nature, the Golden section (this is the Fibonacci number is sometimes referred to in the art and mathematics) is one of the harmonizing laws of the universe, which regulates the structure of the surrounding world and directs the life of the development. So, the rule of the Golden section is used by nature for the formation of the trajectories of the vortex flow in hurricanes, in the formation of elliptical galaxies, which include our milky Way, the “building” shell snail or the auricle of a man directs the movement of a shoal of fish and shows the trajectory of a frightened flock of deer in all directions fleeing from a predator.

The manifestation of the Golden section in nature

The aesthetics of such harmonization of the universe is perceived by the man who has always sought to improve the surrounding reality, as stabilizing nature of the law. Finding the Golden ratio in the face of a man, we instinctively perceive the interlocutor as a harmonious personality, whose development takes place without failures and violations. This can explain why sometimes we inexplicably more like one person than another. It turns out that our possible sympathy took care of nature!

`What do you think, is the widespread use of Fibonacci numbers in nature a coincidence or evidence of the existence of a universal mind? Let's try to discuss this issue in our Telegram chat.`

The most common definition of the Golden section says that the smaller part is to the larger as much of applies to the whole. A unique rule is found in all areas of nature, science and art, allowing some of the eminent researchers of the Middle Ages to make the assumption that the three main parts of the Golden section represent the Christian Father, Son, and Holy spirit.

The rule of the Golden section is followed by even galaxy. Our milky Way in this regard is no exception

From the point of view of mathematics, the Golden section is a kind of ideal proportion, which somehow seeks all animate and inanimate nature. Using the basic principles of the Fibonacci sequence, growing seeds in the center of a sunflower, moving DNA spiral, the Parthenon was built and written by the most famous painting in the world — “Mona Lisa” by Leonardo Da Vinci.

Even the cats unconscious (although, who knows?) follow the principle of the Golden section becoming the darlings of most of the population of the planet

Does the nature of harmony? Sure, there is. And its proof is the Fibonacci number whose origin we have yet to find.
