Paved with posies and plastered with petals the urban forest unravelled before them…
Jupiter’s great red spot. A hurricane three times the size of our whole planet that’s been raging for centuries.

In this breathtaking image we are presented with a star sprinkled sky casting a dreamlike glow over Great Basin National Park in Nevada.
Aside from having some of the darkest night skies in the world, this area is famous for its 5,000 year old bristlecone pine trees, as well as the Lehman Caves at the base of Wheeler Peak, a 3,981 meters) mountain, named for George Wheeler, an explorer and cartographer who led expeditions in the west west from 1869 to 1871.

Fibonacci you crazy bastard….
As seen in the solar system (by no ridiculous coincidence), Earth orbits the Sun 8 times in the same period that Venus orbits the Sun 13 times! Drawing a line between Earth & Venus every week results in a spectacular FIVE side symmetry!!
Lets bring up those Fibonacci numbers again: 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34..
So if we imagine planets with Fibonacci orbits, do they create Fibonacci symmetries?!
You bet!! Depicted here is a:
- 2 sided symmetry (5 orbits x 3 orbits)
- 3 sided symmetry (8 orbits x 5 orbits)
- 5 sided symmetry (13 orbits x 8 orbits) - like Earth & Venus
- 8 sided symmetry (21 orbits x 13 orbits)
I wonder if relationships like this exist somewhere in the universe….
It is beautiful and wondrously curious to know that there is a symetry, pattern and cycle to the seemingly coincidental occurrances that occur in our universe. From plant growth to planetary orbit the laws of old fibbonnaci’s numerical sequence which simply follow the rule that the next is the sum of the 2 immediately before it echoes among all the things in existence like a natural fact of being for all things that ever was and ever will be.
