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 pine cone, 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.

Is math like this in nature pure chance?

Fibonacci sequences appear in biological settings, in two consecutive Fibonacci numbers, such as branching in trees, arrangement of leaves on a stem, the fruitlets of a pineapple, the flowering of artichoke, an uncurling fern and the arrangement of a pine cone. In addition, numerous poorly substantiated claims of Fibonacci numbers or golden sections in nature are found in popular sources, e.g. relating to the breeding of rabbits, the spirals of shells, and the curve of waves[citation needed]. The Fibonacci numbers are also found in the family tree of honeybees. Przemysław Prusinkiewicz advanced the idea that real instances can be in part understood as the expression of certain algebraic constraints on free groups, specifically as certain Lindenmayer grammars. A model for the pattern of florets in the head of a sunflower

Consider the sunflower

The florets within the sunflower's cluster are arranged in a spiral pattern. Typically each floret is oriented toward the next by approximately the golden angle, 137.5°, producing a pattern of interconnecting spirals where the number of left spirals and the number of right spirals are successive Fibonacci numbers. Typically, there are 34 spirals in one direction and 55 in the other; on a very large sunflower there could be 89 in one direction and 144 in the other. This pattern produces the most efficient packing of seeds within the flower head.

Most of us have jobs, let me ask you this, does any efficient system ever just happen, or is it planned and implemented by somebody?

Fibonacci numbers in nature couldn't have just happened, a perfect math system can't evolve. Think about it.

I rather see Fibonacci as signature of efficiency, 100% efficiency all the time! It's actually unlike any efficient system I've seen in use today, it's not just about space, it's also about energy and it could encompass everything. We've barely scratched its potential in reality.

Like if we realize the true meaning of efficiency, our best energy scientists will be rendered fools.

Look at the very basic form of matter, atoms, and anything smaller, and waves (sound, em, etc)

It is from these that consciousness evolved, and eventually the existence of living matter. This primordial consciousness could be God. He may not have actually designed life in a science lab, he may have simply thought it out by faith and love
