Flowers petal count matches the Fibonacci sequence:
3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34 or 55. In the Fibonacci sequence (fn are given by
the formula f1 = 1, f2 = 2, f3 = 3, f4 = 5 and generally f n+2 = fn+1 + fn)
each number is obtained from the sum of the two preceding: 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13,
21, 34, 55, 89, 144, etc.
When one observes the heads of sunflowers,
one notices two series of curves, one winding in one direction and one in
another; the number of spirals not being the same in each sense.
the number of spirals in general either 21 and 34, either 34 and 55, either 55
and 89, or 89 and 144?
Why do they have either 8 spirals from one side
and 13 from the other, or either 5 spirals from one side and 8 from the other?
Why is the number of diagonals of a pineapple also 8 in one direction
and 13 in the other?
The answer to these questions is efficiency during
the growth cycle of plants.
The ratio between successive Fibonacci
numbers ≈ an important constant, Π.
The Golden Ratio or
sometimes Π, which is ≈ 1.61803.
The higher you go in the
Fibonacci sequence, the more closely the ratio between two successive numbers
in the sequence approximates Π.
Π1 + Π0
The Fibonacci sequence shows up
in Pascal's triangle, first used by Chinese mathematician Chu Shih Chieh in
providing coefficients for the binomial expansion in his 1303 treatise
"Precious Mirror of the Four Elements".

with which to engage reality to which its author adheres. The author feels that
the falsification of reality outside personal experience has forged a populace
unable to discern propaganda from reality and that this has been done
purposefully by an international corporate cartel through their agents who wish
to foist a corrupt version of reality on the human race. Religious intolerance
occurs when any group refuses to tolerate religious practices, religious
beliefs or persons due to their religious ideology. This web site marks the
founding of a system of philosophy named The Truth of the Way of the
Lumière Infinie - a rational
religion based on reason which requires no leap of faith, accepts no
tithes, has no supreme leader, no church buildings and in which each and every
individual is encouraged to develop a personal relation with the Creator and
Sustainer through the pursuit of the knowledge of reality in the hope of curing
the spiritual corruption that has enveloped the human spirit. The tenets of The
Truth of the Way of the Lumière Infinie are spelled out in detail on
this web site by the author. Violent acts against individuals due to their
religious beliefs in America is considered a "hate crime."
This web site
in no way condones violence. To the contrary the intent here is to reduce the
violence that is already occurring due to the international corporate cartels
desire to control the human race. The international corporate cartel already
controls the world economic system, corporate media worldwide, the global
industrial military entertainment complex and is responsible for the collapse
of morals, the elevation of self-centered behavior and the destruction of
global ecosystems. Civilization is based on coöperation. Coöperation
does not occur at the point of a gun.
American social mores and values
have declined precipitously over the last century as the corrupt international
cartel has garnered more and more power. This power rests in the ability to
deceive the populace in general through corporate media by pressing emotional
buttons which have been preprogrammed into the population through prior mass
media psychological operations. The results have been the destruction of the
family and the destruction of social structures that do not adhere to the
corrupt international elites vision of
a perfect world. Through
distraction and coercion the direction of thought of the bulk of the population
has been directed toward solutions proposed by the corrupt international elite
that further consolidates their power and which further their purposes.
