In mathematics, the Fibonacci numbers are a sequence of numbers named after Leonardo of Pisa, known as Fibonacci. Fibonacci's 1202 book Liber Abaci introduced the sequence to Western European mathematics, although the sequence had been previously described in Indian mathematics.
The first number of the sequence is 0, the second number is 1, and each subsequent number is equal to the sum of the previous two numbers of the sequence itself, yielding the sequence 0, 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, etc

Can you explain why that fact has any significance? Or am I missing something obvious?
I developed some software that goes on out and eats large chunks of the internet. It reads public domain stuff off of forums and other areas, sometimes strays into chat groups. It’s not very deterministic and it follows links, so sometimes when we set it off, we don’t really know where it’s going to end up going in terms of what text it’s going to eat. And that’s part of the whole thrill of it all, if you will. There’s a serendipitous approach to this because we tell the software, which are called spiders, to sit on this server, open up this one web page, go and find any key words on that web page that we tell you out of this list to start with. And if you find those words, read back a certain number of words and read forward a certain number of words, copy that, do some stuff with it, and if you find any links in there, well, have at it. Go follow those and do the same thing down there.

Hasn't this thing been right somewhat in the past?
There was a documentary on predictions that had it, think it was from the history channel, interesting stuff.

Do you have some connection to the project?
That video has been on ATS for a while, extremely interesting nonetheless. [/quote/]

no dodgy, i have no connection to the project. i am just an outside observer. i was intrigued by quantum mechanics several years back and sought to understand it. once i did, i found it made more sense out of nonsense than anything else id heard.
when i came across the web bots and the ideas behind how they work, i immediately saw the similarities between the two. also, i am reminded of the bible code.
i used to believe in the bible, but now i do not. however, the same technique in the bible code works on other books as well. so, apparently, there is more than one way to pull predictions out of spoken or written words.
the web bots are no different from their predecessors, however, it seems to be more effective to analyze words realtime, as opposed to words composed long ago.
this whole topic brings up some interesting ideas though, ie if we know the future can we change it? if we know the future will we make it happen anyway? are things set in stone by some kind of plan?
this sh-t is real life butterfly effect and donnie darko.
