Super Storm Sandy Image Fits The Golden Ratio. The Perfect Storm?

I did a quick search here for previous threads and did not find any, so if it has been posted before, oh well it's new to me.

As we know Sandy devastated the East Coast, and ruined plans of mine for that week also.

But while browsing I ran across this uncanny image and it just fits to the tee! I did some image searches on NOAA and they are very close too. Without photoshopping and overlaying them myself, I'm pretty convinced.

What say you ATS?

Nature has a way of 'unfolding' huh?

dont all vortices and spirals at some point contain the golden ratio?

isnt it just an aspect of of the nature of movement of energy?

Ah yes, good ol Fibonacci. All spirals contain this sequence.

I don't know? Makes sense.

But it sure is aesthetically pleasing to the eye.

It does have an uncanny Golden Order about it. However, I have to point out that the eye of the storm is not at the center of the spiral.

If you look long enough for a pattern soon you will see that pattern everywhere even when its not actually present.

Quite interesting. But I'm pretty sure this could've been found in many other hurricanes as well.

If you think that's cool, here are some more examples.

The ancestral tree of a male honeybee follows Fibonacci’s sequence. Female honeybees (either workers or queens) hatch from an egg that has been fertilized by a male honeybee, but male honeybees are produced by the queen’s unfertilised eggs, so they have a mother but no father. As the above picture clearly shows, the sequence that gives us the number of honeybees in each generation of the ancestral tree of a male bee is 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13…

Thanks for bringing that.

I am quite familiar with the fibonacci in nature, though had not heard about the honey bees.

And I just never placed it with storms, but as a couple of posters have stated that it is common in vortices, which is just fascinating, that winds, plants, bee's you name it have this built in.

As we all know, artist have been using it for ages, but here is a couple of unnatural inclusions some might not have realized.

Golden proportion also found on the design of the Volkswagen Beetle, which was designed in 1997 by Jay Mays, Freeman Thomas, Peter Schreyer[1]. The body fits nearly into the top half of a golden ellipse and the side windows also repeat the shape of the golden ellipse with the door, shown in Figure 27 (a), (b), (c) and (d). The front and rear view of the car are almost in a square with all surfaces symmetrical. Golden proportion appears on the design of some other cars shown in Figure 27 (e) and (f).


Thought this was interesting too.

Is the iPhone 5 ugly?

Recently, 62 per cent of people responding to a poll run by Business Insider thought the iPhone 5 ugly. Whilst I wouldn’t necessarily go that far, the design is visually jarring. One possible reason for this is that the ratio of its height to width has deviated even further than the previous model (and almost any smartphone on the market) from what is called the “golden rectangle”. The golden rectangle is one in which the length of the longest side divided by the shortest side is approximately 1.618. The exact number is called the golden ratio, and it is a solution to the equation x2 – x – 1 = 0. Read more:
