One component of Chaos Theory suggests that there are patterns even in the most seemingly random of systems. I suppose one could see these patterns in nature and point to it as evidence of a supreme creator, while others could say that these patterns are merely the shadows and reflections of the natural laws of physics.
All living things sense gravity like humans might sense light or sound. The Biological Research In Canisters (BRIC–14) experiment, explores how moss cells sense and respond to gravity and light...
plant shoots will grow away from the direction of gravity and grow towards a light source
Light direction is not altered in microgravity so the plant will still grow phototropically (towards light) just like on earth.
As the Sun's magnetic field is carried out through the solar system, the Sun is rotating. Its rotation winds up the magnetic field into a large rotating spiral, known as the "Parker spiral", named after the scientist who first described it. The Parker spiral magnetic field is indicated by the yellow arrows.
The magnetic field is primarily directed outward from the Sun in one of its hemispheres, and inward in the other. This causes opposite magnetic field directions in the Parker spiral. The thin layer between the different field directions is described as the "neutral current sheet". Since this dividing line between the outward and inward field directions is not exactly on the solar equator, the rotation of the Sun causes the current sheet to become "wavy", and this waviness is carried out into interplanetary space by the solar wind.
The DNA molecule, the program for all life, is based on the golden section. It measures 34 angstroms long by 21 angstroms wide for each full cycle of its double helix spiral.
Construction of the golden section DNA and the golden section
34 and 21, of course, are numbers in the Fibonacci series and their ratio, 1.6190476 closely approximates phi, 1.6180339.
A cross-sectional view from the top of the DNA double helix forms a decagon:
A decagon is in essence two pentagons, with one rotated by 36 degrees from the other, so each spiral of the double helix must trace out the shape of a pentagon.
Pentagons are based on phi.
The ratio of the diagonal of a pentagon to its side is Phi to 1. So, no matter which way you look at it, even in its smallest element, DNA, and life, is constructed using phi and the golden section!

Plato obscurely says the fifth Platonic solid, the dodecahedron, “...the god used for arranging the constellations on the whole heaven.”
“The dodecahedron was not widely taught,” said Gilbert. “It is the pure, spiritual lifeforce, and people were told to keep it hidden, as if it were misused, it could create terrible destruction.”
Gilbert indicated many scientists – including those with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration – now believe the earth is shaped like a dodecahedron,
Given this information, one of the nodes on the dodecahedron falls in the same area as the famous “Bermuda Triangle.”
“Using a dodecahedron on a world grid analysis, you’ll see the nodal points, pressure points in space and time,” said Gilbert. “Other nodal points on the earth have been known as ‘devil’s graveyards’ because space and time don’t work right.”
Modern scholars disregarded the idea of the Platonic solids until the 1980s, when Professor Emeritus Robert Moon at the University of Chicago demonstrated the entire periodic table of elements - everything known in the physical world - is based on these five forms.
Curiously enough, if you take the sine of 666º, you get -0.80901699, which is one-half of negative phi, or perhaps what one might call the "anti-phi."
The trigonometric relationship of sin 666º to phi is based on an isosceles triangle with a base of phi and sides of 1. When this triangle is enclosed in a circle with a radius of 1, we see that the lower line, which has an angle of 306º on the first rotation and 666º on the second rotation, has a sine equal to one-half negative phi.
In this we see the unity of phi divided into positive and negative, analogous perhaps to light and darkness or good and evil. Could this "sine" be a "sign" as well?
In addition, 666 degrees is 54 degrees short of the complete second circle and when dividing the 360 degrees of a circle by 54 degrees you get 6.66... The other side of a 54 degree angle in a right angle is 36 degrees and 36 divided by 54 is .666.

Okay, I found some of My notes, which in itself is a miracle, as I'm super unorganized. The Mayan Prophecy goes like this- 2012 is the 'Age of Transformation'. In 2012 (12/21/2012) the winter solstice sun will rise to conjunct with the intersection of the Milky Way & the plane of the eliptic, opening a channel or a sacred doorway for 'cosmic energy'-raising Our vibration into 'enlightenment'. The process of the alignment is called the 'Precession of the Equinox' & is a very real event only occuring once every 26,000 yrs & can be easily looked up. 26,000 yrs. Crazy huh? Will Our enlightenment happen? Eh...who knows? I think that if there was ever a time that the P of the E could be it. I mean, the whole universe is supposed to open Herself up. How often does that happen(every 26,000 yrs!!!) Either way, We will be witness to a very rare event. How lucky. As far as being enlightened, well, that's in My other notes. I think it's supposed to be a mass enlightenment, but I'll check on that.
I think that the double helix in the center of the Milky Way, the Mayans Sacred Tree, might be more than a coincidence.
Fibonacci numbers also appear in the description of the reproduction of a population of idealized bees, according to the following rules:
* If an egg is laid by an unmated female, it hatches a male.
* If, however, an egg was fertilized by a male, it hatches a female.
Thus, a male bee will always have one parent, and a female bee will have two.
If one traces the ancestry of this male bee (1 bee), he has 1 female parent (1 bee). This female had 2 parents, a male and a female (2 bees). The female had two parents, a male and a female, and the male had one female (3 bees). Those two females each had two parents, and the male had one (5 bees). If one continues this sequence, it gives a perfectly accurate depiction of the Fibonacci sequence.
The Fibonacci numbers are Nature's numbering system. They appear everywhere in Nature, from the leaf arrangement in plants, to the pattern of the florets of a flower, the bracts of a pinecone, or the scales of a pineapple. The Fibonacci numbers are therefore applicable to the growth of every living thing, including a single cell, a grain of wheat, a hive of bees, and even all of mankind.
