The Fibonacci Sequence

Yesterday we learnt about dare I say it, maths! Well the Fibonacci Sequence!
What I learnt is that its a number sequence, you ad the first two number to get the next number! The Fibonacci numbers are 0, 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, …
The golden section numbers are ±0·61803 39887 and ±1·61803 39887
The golden string is 1 0 1 1 0 1 0 1 1 0 1 1 0 1 0 1 1 0 1 …
a sequence of 0s and 1s that is closely related to the Fibonacci numbers and the golden section.
Now its strange but all this links to the golden section which links to virtually everything, in art, design, and nature!

So Who is Fibonacci?
Well Leonardo of Pisa, or Leonardo Pisanoas he is better known, he has been acknowledged as the greatest European mathematician of the middle ages!
The Golden Section, well most designers, or all use this in there work. It is found in many things, trees, plants, ppetals, and even seeds. Scientist also use the Golden Section and found it to be all over the world and even the universe! Freaky!! And if you look closely you can see this is many companies logos and websites.

Salvador Dali
I have been researching a number of artist and what I have found is the Dali users the Golden Ratio! The whole reason many people use this is becuase its easy on the eye, if that makes sense, apparently we like looking at things or like things better which use this ratio.

Da Vinci
Da Vinci was trying to develop his own mind and go against his day society, he was ahead of his time and could have been deemed as heretic.
