Fibonacci was an italian monk in the 14th century who discovered a key
to nature's own matrix for development. Well ... not everything develops
according to the same model, but quite a lot can actually fit into the
number series which has come to bear his name and it's basically very
simple. One original thing is followed by or causes another identical
thing. And from then on you proceed by adding the two latest numbers to
get the next. One plus one equals two. Then one plus two equals three.
Two plus three equals five. Three plus five equals eight. Five plus eight
equals thirteen. Eight plus thirteen equals twentyone. Yes, just add the
two latest numbers to get the next in the series. Very simple and very
often used by nature. If you try to find a median value you will discover
that every second number is more than 1,6180339... and every other second
number is below it, but the longer you keep calculating, the closer you
get to the ideal mean. The value is never-ending, i.e. as far as is known,
it never totals up nicely to end the number series. However, nature never
uses anything but real numbers. You will find numbers close to 1,618 in
many proportions in living organisms. It's truly fascinating to study
how this number sequence appears in unexpected contexts.
compute the circumference of a circle we use the unending number pi which
is usually used by its approximate value 3,14. The circumference of a
circle equals the diameter ( = the distance across a circle to its opposite
edges measured over its centre ) times pi and is impossible to compute
exactly because pi has no known end.
* The Edda - ancient nordic mythology.
ancient nordic mythology has several characteristics and is often written
in a concise language. The texts are often about fighters and glory, courage
and betrayal. Maybe the most intresting text ( from my point of view)
is that of the mystic woman shaman, the Volva, who presents a mysterious
tale about the history of the world ... well, possibly even of the universe!
... from the misty eons before anything existed until what we can expect
after the end of everything and the re-start of life or existence thereafter.
