The Fibonacci Sequence in Nature : The Mystery of Golden Ratio

In mathematics, the limit of Fibonacci series is called as Golden Ratio. This ratio is approximately equal to 1,618. In nature, one can come across this ratio in many areas of art and science. Fibonacci sequence actually has a very unique characteristic. Dividing a number with previous number allows you to get approximately similar result. However, the result will be the same after the 13th number inside the series: 1,618 that is Golden Ratio.

I kept on researching over it on the net and wanted to see them by naked eyes. Everything I read was completely true and the realm was really amazing. This is a list of Fibonacci numbers in nature. I believe that some of the facts will astonish you.

The distribution of seeds in sunflower is spiral. The seeds of the sunflower spiral outwards in both clockwise and counterclockwise directions from the center of the flower. The number of clockwise and counterclockwise spirals are two consecutive numbers in the Fibonacci sequence.

The shells of the snails follow the Fibonacci sequence. In the same way, the shells of the nautilus follow the same rule. The only difference between these two is that nautilus’ shells grow in a three-dimensional spiral, whereas snails’ shells grow in a two-dimensional spiral.

Pine cones are one of the well-known examples of Fibonacci sequence. All cones grow in spirals, starting from the base where the stalk was, and going round and round the sides until they reach the top.

Another notable example is human body.In human body, the ratio of the length of forearm to the length of the hand is equal to 1.618, that is, Golden Ratio. Another well-known examples on human body are:

  1. The ratio between the length and width of face
  2. Ratio of the distance between the lips and where the eyebrows meet to the length of nose
  3. Ratio of the length of mouth to the width of nose
  4. Ratio of the distance between the shoulder line and the top of the head to the head length
  5. Ratio of the distance between the navel and knee to the distance between the knee and the end of the foot
  6. Ratio of the distance between the finger tip and the elbow to the distance between the wrist and the elbow

The same sequence exists on the leaves of poplar, cherry, apple, plum, oak and linden trees.

    “In mathematics, the limit of Fibonacci series is called as Golden Ratio. This ratio is approximately equal to 1,618.” The Fibonacci series does not have a limit. It has a closed form solution which involves the golden ratio, but is not it…

    In fact, except for the sunflower seed example, every time you mention the Fibonacci sequence, you should be using the Golden Ratio.

    The “ratios” you use seem quite arbitrary. You can pick any length between two points on the body, and then just be careful to find another set of points that makes the ratio close to 1.618.

    What the hell does the length of the mouth have to do with the width of the nose? Well, I guess EVERYTHING if you want it to fit with some “magical” number.

    In fact, you said God is trying to tell us something?
    no, more like God is trying to tell you to grow up and take a good look at the real word.

    try and measure the deaths relating to religious intolerance, try and measure the abuse of corporations, the greed of western idiocracy, the blind militant crusade that will end up devastating our world both thru science and religion.

    follow that sequence and you will find the cause of natures most viral outgrowth ( mankind )

    Thought the article was interesting? Get a tape measure and measure some of those items yourself. Several are simply not true.

    Heck, you don’t even need to do that. Just think critically. Does everyone have the same proportions? Ever meet someone with a really long or wide face?


  16. Person Says...

    On May 17, 2008 at 6:27 pm

    I agree in the seemingly arbitrary points of measurement. And yes, you DO need sources. We’re not lazy if we don’t bother to do our own research on an article. That’s what articles are for. They bring information to us. I could have gotten more useful information if I was bored and decided “Hm. I’ve done math problems on Fibonacci numbers before. I wonder where they are used?” and simply read the first few pages. Instead this “writer” is supposed to have done that for me and compile all the information into a neat little article where I can read it. However, I can not assume any of this to be true because of the outrageous claims, therefore I will have to research this subject on my own making any work this person claims to have done completely useless.

    You are confusing the golden ratio, which happens in nature, to the Fibonacci Sequence which is similar, but not quite the same thing.


  20. Euler Says...

    On May 17, 2008 at 6:46 pm

    Most of the examples are false. The golden ratio appears in shells and sunflowers but that’s about it. Saying that these appearances are hidden messages from a god is bizarre to say the least. These appearances have scientific explanations that have nothing to do with superstition. Pi appears in the human eye because it’s round. Is this also a hidden message? Of course not.

    “business cards and standard paper are also Golden Ratio.”

    Standard paper is 8.5″x11″. That is a ratio of 1.294, not the golden ratio.

    Here is a list of standard business card sizes:
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Business_card

    Not one of them is the golden ratio. The closest is:
    Australia/New Zealand (most common) 90 × 55 3.54 × 2.165

    Which is a ratio of 1.63636364 : 1.

    Nice try.

    Let’s see, what does God want to tell us …

    The ratio of 1,618 occurs widely in nature, and provides humanity the clue that God is there, as long as we ignore the rest of the cases when that ratio doesn’t apply …

    And God spelled backwards is Dog …
    Words spelled backwards occurs widely in English, and provides people the clue of what that word really means, as long as we ignore the rest of the cases when that rule produces incoherent words …

    As far as i know the ratio 1.63636364 : 1 is the ratio which our eyes like the most. Only the most beautiful faces have this ratio with respect to other organs and looks. Not only face, this ratio also satisfy our appetite of good looking figure of a human body. Good painters always this this in his heart (may be he is totally unaware of the fact)

    For those who don’t know, the simple meaning of a Fibonacci sequence is 1,1,2,3,5,8,13,21,34 etc etc. If you want a better explanation either Google it or read The Da Vinci Code.

    Fibonacci grids used for numerical weather prediction:

    http://www3.interscience.wiley.com/journal/114123276/abstract?CRETRY=1&SRETRY=0

    One problem with standard grid generators is that the numerical cells vary too much in size. A grid based on fibonacci spirals is extremely well balanced except for very small regions at the poles. This slight deficiency is acceptable for weather models, because not much happens there.

    Fibonacci sequence is quite interesting as many people reacted on this phenomenon if we may call it. When existence and non-existence is discussed, that means it’s a reality. What people think, believe, see, and feel takes shape and become a part of one’s life.

    Q: What is the longest chapter in the Bible?
    A: Psalms 119

    Q: Which chapter is in the center of the Bible?
    A: Psalms 118

    Fact: There are 594 chapters before Psalms 118

    Fact: There are 594 chapters after Psalms 118

    Add these numbers up and you get 1188.

    Q: What is the center verse in the Bible?

    A: Psalms 118:8

    Does this verse say something significant
    about God’s perfect will for our lives?


    Psalms 118:8 (NKJV)

  56. Sophilius Says...

    On June 1, 2008 at 7:21 pm

    Before one can connect the Golden Ratio and nature, let alone, a god, one must clearly and accurately explain the Golden Ratio and the Fibonacci Sequence. The Fibonacci sequence has an infinite number of numbers in its sequence beginning with 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34, 55, 89, … a given number of this sequence is obtained by adding the previous two numbers (examples: 1+1=2, 1+2=3, 2+3=5, 3+5=8, 5+8=13, etc.). There is an equation to produce any number in the Fibonacci Sequence and I provide it at the end of my comments for those interested. If you take a relatively large number from the Fibonacci Sequence and divide it by the number that comes before it, the result is close to the Golden Ratio. The larger the number (and the previous number) selected from the Fibonacci Sequence, the closer it approaches the Golden Ratio. The Golden Ratio equals (1+square root of 5)/2. Now that the foundation has been established, we can move forward.
    Equation to produce “F” which is the “x”th number in the Fibonacci Sequence (Note: “sq5″ means the square root of 5; “^” is the symbol for exponent or power, “*” is multiplication, and “/” is division): F = (1/sq5) * ({[(1+sq5)/2]^x}-{[(1-sq5)/2]^x})
    For example: If x=5, then F=5; If x=6, then F=8.
    Thank you

    On June 1, 2008 at 7:31 pm

    @Kai While the “well-known examples” of the appearance of the Golden Ratio in nature largely bogus, it certainly is the case that the ratio of successive numbers in the Fibonacci Sequence converges to the Golden Ratio, and it’s easy to prove.

    I believe in the the golden ratio… Michelangelo used it quite frequently in his paintings and I believe it does raise an eyebrow when that number is magically struck in nature. I don’t know that there is any one governing rule in nature that overrides the diversity and place of all the others found all around us – meaning: the universe is diverse and constantly breaking the boundaries of our minds and challenging what we think we know and believe. The universe has devised a plan to consume our lives, baffled by it’s intricacies, in vain trying to decipher what we feel and think, in an effort to make a mark. An effort to be remembered. I want to believe in the golden rule because it is easy to live in a universe where I know where to place things. 1.6 is an easy number to go to when I’m having a creative block. So in that way it becomes a sort of equilibrium I use when I lose my way. A “golden rule” in more ways then one.

    everything is relevant, but it appears that more info is seemingly demanded. here is a link that will pretty much address any question left unaddressed and many of them that were.
    If one can read and process the depth of the information and relevance of the material contained, then possible, you won’t be too harsh on the author. As depicted in the article below, there is a significance to the sequence as well as a benefit to those that work in the field. Not to mention it is interesting, but isn’t all of math interesting….???
    here is the link that has MUCH more info.

    I have tackled the challenge of making a (large) CHAMBERED NAUTILUS SHELL in stainless steel. I started from the premise that it represented the PHI or Fibonacci spiral. I plotted the spiral on a large piece of paper to make a pattern for the cutting of the metal sheet to make up the two sides of the creatures shell. I have a small sliced REAL nautilus shell,and I placed it on the pattern and simply couldn’t find where it mated up…This was rather vexing I can tell you. I’d heard pretty much since I began my studies in Sacred Geometry through the popular literature that the nautilus shell was the QUINTESSENTIAL example of the Fibonacci spiral,but when it came time to accomplish this construction the spiral DID NOT MATCH THE PHI SPIRAL.
    Here’s a link to a short paper published by the British mathematician John Sharp explaining why…
    http://www.emis.de/journals/NNJ…4n1-pt04.html
    And here’s a link to my Chambered Nautilus shell work-in-progress:
    ou8nrtist2.deviantart.com/art/N…131904
    It is a logarithmic spiral based on 3,NOT even close to a Fibonacci spiral.

    built the Kaaba by Prophet Ibrohim the U.S. with his son Prophet Ismail AS is the central point of the universe. So it was not long in the wake of origin rather than standing. Unique anymore … ka’ba the distance from the north pole and the distance ka’ba to the south pole, where the longest distance in the shortest distance to the result 1.618. So is the distance from the Kaaba to the west and east ka’ba distance where the long side on the short side, also see figure 1.618.

    So is the diagonal distance ka “even on the map, from the long distance side to side on the short distance to the two, would produce distance 1.618. And where ka’ba distance to the east and west more semetris compared with the distance from Greenwich mean time (GMT ).

    In London which is used as a central point to determine the time of 0 (zero) degrees to the west as far as 180 degrees and 0 (zero) degrees to 180 degrees east as far as the meeting in the Pacific Ocean, sebnarnya not accurate, so according to this concept should have a good time sharing not from the city of London, but the city of Mecca, Allahu Akbar.

    \”Whatever Says\”… brilliant. Numbers in nature sure, proof in history…. Irrefutable. Very Nice. Mere coincidence is a charming thought, but time and presence is absolute. Meaningless values of all kind can be tied to a specific number at some point. The concept of a mathematical spiral is straight forward. Understanding physical presence is chaotic at best. There is no equation to free will and influence. \”viral outgrowth\”…. concise and devastatingly eloquent. Very nice my friend.

    There is no god. Heaven and hell is a watered-down metaphor for making healthy decisions. I do believe in something after life. Wrap your mind around this…. How is it man can live 80 years and experience all he may… yet life starts, then stops… There is definately something after death. This I don’t dispute. Reincarnation maybe, but heaven and hell… come on. Think about all the “prayers” god receives in a day.. FREE WILL MY FRIENDS!!! At the end of the day you are one of 6+ billion humans on earth. You honestly believe god will answer your prayer for a simple and happy life!?!? NO!!!!! You are responsible for creating your own path. Go ahead and Believe in god… i think thats cute, but while you wish and hope, I act.

    And just to solidify what I am saying… do you think your wonderful god would stop me from ending your life if i so choose to do so (free will)…. I could end your life now, and all of your chronie “god-followers” could only hope for karma… One life for another. If you believe this then you would be observing the rules of islam. One life for another. OR…. retrobution for your death by murdering me… someone else is now acting upon free will and further proving my point. Im done talking semantics. The idea of god is a pathetic primative ploy (hows that for aliteration) to scare the ignorant into alignment with the rest of the unoriginal, mindless sheep. At any rate, civilization is far from civilized. We have ignorant followers, or ignorant leaders. Originality is completely non existant.

    Vaneesa, stop wasting oxygen, do something with your life

    nektarous ..do you think your response is original? ho hum…this argument/debate is ageless which is precisely why free will is so important, through faith, not fear. YOUR fear is as palpable as your hate…wonder and amazement should be the filters for which we see with our minds, feel with our hearts…even the most common, infinitesmal object or experience should be re-examined with fresh eyes, but let’s not fear what we don’t understand…i’m still questing, not blind, just ready for the next adventure

    Interesting, but any person with a scientific mind should be skeptical about something like the “golden ratio”.

    Using the example of the human face – the reality is that everyone have different face types. If you go to a good eyewear professional he/she will tell you that. The ratios are always different.

    Also if the golden ratio applies at all to a face, it only applies to Caucasians (and not all at that). It does not apply to any Asians at all and the same with subsaharan Africans.

    So either this says all Asians and Africans are ugly, or that the golden ratio is … well not that golden, to sugarcoat it.

    I find this concept so interesting, but the part that I find overwhelming is in the responses HERE in the comments section.

    The readers who are open-minded to the possibility that a connection exists which would indicate that nature is part of a plan have left calm, rational comments.

    On the other hand, those closed to the possibility, and I suppose clinging to some chaos theory, have left comments that give an impression of a rabid dog, foaming at the mouth – critical, vicious, persecuting.

    Belief (or lack thereof) is a matter of choice, but it doesn’t change the actual existence of something one way or the other, does it? I don’t see gravity, but it anchors me, nonetheless.

    I wonder why god is using the internet when he/she is god? Oh well, maybe he or she is bored with existence and just wants to use these mortal means to express their views.

    Maybe next time they will be a rock band on some old TV show.

    The human body points are copied from the Da Vinci Code and it was made popular only after Dan Brown published the book, still good information.
