That is what makes the Fibbonaci what it is, right? An elegant mathematical expression of natural law. It is reflected throughout nature.

Keep trying to awaken everyone, good job.

You could take every hurricane at a certain time and generate the same picture depending on where you freeze it, so this is not unusual. The Fibonacci sequence does not apply to everything. I did a quick search to see if there were any examples in the weather, zero at this point. I will keep trying. The Golden Ratio has always been a fascinating equation as is the Fibonacci sequence. Neat picture though!

The terms Golden Ratio and Fibonacci have gotten over-worked at times and not all examples are deserving of the terms.

Take care.

Perhaps tou could shed some light on this.

Natural Law you say?

NO!

Show me. Where is this fibononachi thinga ma bob is relative to this slit thingy experimental other thinga ma bob.

I would like to see the math.

Please show me this. I find it is more common to see a hurricane that follows a Fermat's spiral or Archimedean spiral.

Fermat's spiral

Archimedean spiral.

Hurricane Katrina

The golden spiral, which is what some call the spiral shape in the picture, can be found all over the place in nature. This is the same pattern on shells, and the actual number sequence, represented by the equation:

X_n = X_[n-1] + X_[n-2]
Where X_1 = 1 and X_2 = 1

(edit to add that this is the only method I know of displaying mathematical expressions on a board, but
this particular method's package is not installed here on ATS. Anyway, the ( _ ) symbol represents a subscript.)

can be found in many places throughout nature, such as the pattern of stems on a leaf, or a pine cone. It is quite remarkable in my opinion. So the fact that the golden triangle, which is interrelated with the Fibonacci numbers and the golden ratio, is found in the shape of a hurricane is nothing out of the ordinary, although it is still quite impressive in my opinion.

1+1 = 2

That's math. Happy?

It's all I could really get out of your post. and coming from me, that means you're really confusing.

Next thing people will think fractals are magic.

I don't think I'm getting any smarter as I age past mid life crisis...

But it sure does feel it, when I see threads like this

Hilarious, and so true.

You could keep going though

1.1.3.5.8.13.21.34.55.89.144........

By definition, the first two numbers in the Fibonacci sequence are 0 and 1 (alternatively, 1 and 1), and each subsequent number is the sum of the previous two.

Somewhere in the formation of every hurricane you can see it. But, I am not going to show you. You can find your examples, too.

Sorry if that sounded like I was doubting you. I agree. I honestly had thought you had observed this and would have an example, was genuinely curious.
