Sound Familiar?
    #3529316 - 12/21/04 10:54 PM (13 years, 4 months ago)

In this book I read awhile ago, there was refrence to this number that is seen throughout nature time and time again.

The rows of sunflower seeds in a sunflower, the stripes on a bee, all kind of things.

Does this sound familiar to anyone? If so, please let me know...
It's like having a word on the tip of my tongue, only it's a thought on the tip of my brain...

I believe the Fibonacci sequence of numbers is also derived from the Golden ratio.

I think he mentions it in Demons and Angels.

But yes, that was the book, and this is what I'm talking about. Thanks
