The Fibonacci Code (Or The Fibonacci Sequence)

The Fibonacci Code (also known as the Fibonacci Sequence) is a very odd and latent pattern in nature.

The Fibonacci sequence (or Fibonacci Code) is a number pattern in just about EVERYTHING natural. You will be surprised at what has the Fibonacci sequence (or Fibonacci Code) in it.

What is it?

It is a pattern when you add the 2 previous numbers together and to get the next number. And so on.

  1. 1. 1. 2. 3. 5. 8. 13. 21. 34. 55. 89. 144. And so on.

These numbers and this pattern itself can be found in the most random of places.

For example, petals on a flower.

Also, it’s in every pinecone (13 swirls).

Now, this is quite interesting.

Suppose a person tried to breed rabbits. Ideally, a rabbits at the age of one month is too young to breed. By the second month they are able to breed, and every month after, they breed. Every time they breed, one “pair” of rabbits are born. (One male, one female) If each pair of rabbits breeds, and none of the bunnies die, what would happen?

  1. At the beginning, nothing happened. So, there is still only 1 pair of rabbits.
    At the end of the first month, there is still one only 1 pair. (Think pairs not rabbits)
  2. At the end of the second month the female produces another pair, so now there are 2 pairs.
  3. At the end of the third month, the very first female produces a second pair, so there are 3 pairs of rabbits.
  4. By the fourth month, the original female has produced yet another new pair, the female born two months ago produces her first pair also, making 5 pairs.
  5. If this goes on… it will follow the Fibonacci Code / Fibonacci Sequence.

If this seems confusing, click here for a diagram

So, the Fibonacci Sequence / Fibonacci Code goes 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, etc. Cool huh?

    Really interesting. The bunnies thing really spelled it out for me in layman’s terms. But you don’t really go into how it’s found in nature which would be helpful.

    hahaha i was puzzled and unable to understand that?

    but later i apprehended the sequence?

    Thats REALLY awesome but is there any purpose of the fibonacci code???????????????????????

    I once read a book that had the fibonacci sequence in it. It said that some how it’s a way of randomly letting everyone get something.
    Example
    there’s a dot on one person’s milk carton every day. Using the Fibonacci sequence, everyone will eventually find a dodt on their milk carton.

    the fibonacci code remains a realistic mystery that lives on. though it seems to a fiction creation, it’s living nature applies to everything. but, how does this code apply to te shape of the brain or the various layers it applies to.thyere is realyan ability and a millinial creative and hinking skill in every living man:is this awesome code one of such? can it still be worked on?

    really interesting how math applies to everything and how it’s really true

    on the pinecone model it said 1 2 3 5 and then 6? shouldny 6 be 8???

    i want fibowatzit code, not sequence. calling this the the code is very annoying for people who need it for school projects like me.

    I did not get how this can be seen in the flower petals… anyone?


  16. Steve Says...

    On May 22, 2009 at 7:25 am

    Said to be seen in the flower petals because one has 8 petals, the other has 5, and both 5 and 8 are Fibonacci numbers. Seen in the pinecone because there are 13 nodes in the circumference of the swirl, and 13 is a Fibonacci number. Don’t quite get the rabbit example, since rabbits normally have 4 to 6 in a litter, not 2. Somebody was looking hard to find examples in nature, but I don’t think these are them.

    I don’t get it, what was his sequence is it 1,1,2,3,5,8, etc?


  21. joesdog Says...

    On April 2, 2012 at 10:03 am

    it\’s a sequence of numbers that is frequently found in nauture, kadeja. if you look at the sequence 1, 1. 2. 3. 5, 8 you will notice that the sum of each pair of consecutive numbers is equal to the number following the pair in the sequence.
