Phi is the limit of the ratio of two consecutive terms of the Fibonacci sequence. I don't think it is everywhere but one often sees this ratio as a proportion in for example, spirals of snails, many flowers and in paintings and architecture. I find the sequence to be a lot of fun, especially generating formulas for finding terms further out without calculating each one. But one can go overboard on enthusiasm.

> Hey everyone i recently fell upon some information that caught my attention rather quickly unlike a lot of things i read but the information is in regards to the Fibonacci sequence i understand how to figure the number part out but what i cant understand is why so many people think/ or say that its everywhere you look.........as in tge design of everyone and everything. And just an added not on this discussion topic why are phi and other numbers so closely related to the Fibonacci sequence its like religious beliefs are keeping everything that we need to learn about out of the schools curriculum in example we all hace heard of the measurement of sound being Hz and learned about sound waves briefly but they never tell you what the sound waves vibrations can do to inert materials such as salt... i.e. if you take a speaker and place a piece of cardboard (that you have painted black as to be able to see the salt) on top of the speaker pour the salt on to it and put on a sound Hz we will say 493.6 Hz for this experimentation you can see the salt vibrate at because of the sound waves causing the board to rattle but what school and this is mostly related to sciences and math but why does the sounds make shapes out of the salt and if you look closely to a lot of ancient texts such as the shamash tablet you will see onebof these symbols depicted on the tablet and the it is again later referenced again in homestead fl when tge coral castle was built. Tgis is just a question i have had on my mind lately so i thought i would ask it to the folks that i know could more than likely give me an accurate and anatomically correct educated answer on the subject thanks yall have a great day
