Geometry has provided structure and a visual language to designers and industrialists for centuries.
It was Fibonacci that defined the underlying sequence of numbers that underscores every mollecule in the natural world as the ‘Golden Ratio’. While his ‘Fibonacci Sequence’ made it official, The Golden Ratio was certainly known by the ancient Greeks and Romans, the Egyptians and even the builders of the great stone monoliths such as Stonehenge.
The Natural World of Sacred Geometry
Entering the world of sacred geometry allows us to newly appreciate exquisite patterns of creation: the molecules of our DNA, the snow flake, pinecones, flower petals, diamond crystals, the branching of trees, the nautilus shell, the star we spin around, the air we breath, and all life forms as we know them emerge out of timeless geometric codes.
The Fibonacci sequence starts like this: 0, 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34, 55 and so on forever. Each number is the sum of the two numbers that precede it. It’s a simple pattern, but it appears to be a kind of built-in numbering system to the cosmos. The number of petals in a flower consistently follows the Fibonacci sequence. We love how you can see this exquisite pattern and ratio in the sunflower. Typically, seeds are produced at the center, and then migrate towards the outside to fill all the space. Sunflowers provide a great example of these spiraling patterns.
